Publishing Success: Archie Watt


Congratulations to final year student Archie Watt from the B.Sc.(Hons) Computer Networks degree who has successfully published a journal article in the University’s journal of undergraduate research. The main focus of the paper is on security policies for a BYOD network, and the additional challenges that can be faced when developing a security policy for such a network. From the Abstract:

 The paper emphasizes the importance of security policies and also studies some of the main factors that can hinder their effectiveness, including insufficient security training for employees.   Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is also examined in detail, including the various advantages and disadvantages that it can bring to an organization supporting it, and the various factors, such as advances in wireless network technologies and the greatly increased use of mobile computing devices, such as tablets and smartphones, that have led to its growth over the last few years.

“The aim of publication  is to promote research at undergraduate level and showcase achievements of all undergraduates across all levels and disciplines of the University. … The journal offers an opportunity for all undergraduates to publish work from all Schools. As a multidisciplinary journal currently it is one of only a few in the UK and the only one in Wales.”  (ref)

Archie I was also invited and visited Google’s TC Summit in California earlier this year and was asked to join the Top Contributor (TC) programme.

Published Research: Wireless Sensor Networks

Congratulations to Dr. Carlene  Campbell a member of the School’s Lecturing Team who has recently published a book chapter and paper on the use of Wireless Sensor Networks.


The book is titled  Wireless Sensor Networks: Current Status and Future Trends and is published by CRC Press. It looks at the various issues associated with Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN), including their structure, activities and applications. The chapter looks at the Medium Access Control (MAC) layer, where it focuses on the design of multichannel communication based on the 802.11 Distributed Coordinated Function (DCF) to improve its communication in WSN.

The Paper entitled “Multichannel Framework for Body Area Network in Health Monitoring” proposed a novel multi-radio multi-channel framework for efficient communication among devices in wireless body area networks (WBAN).  the focus is to ensure energy efficient and reliable communication in WBAN.
