Professor Kevin Morris


I received the B.Eng. and Ph.D. degrees in electronics and communications engineering from the University of Bristol, Bristol, U.K., in 1995 and 1999, respectively.

I am currently Professor of Radio Frequency Engineering and Head of the School of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at the University of Leeds.

Previously I was  Professor of Radio Frequency Engineering in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of Bristol.

I am involved with a number of research programs within U.K. I have authored or coauthored over 100 academic articles and is the joint author of five patents.

My research interests are principally in looking at methods of reducing power consumption in communications systems, including the area of radio frequency hardware design with specific interest in the design of efficient linear broadband power amplifiers for use within future communications systems.

Research interests

My main areas of research interest are the design and development of new and novel methods of radio frequency power amplification.

These methods are intended to provide the required levels of linearity to support a wide range of standards and also to be efficient enough to reduce significantly the power consumption of radio networks and can also to be used in mobile applications where power consumption is required to be kept to a minimum.

Current research is looking at new and novel methods of designing multimode amplifier linearisation systems which are capable of linearly transmitting multiple standards with minimum power consumption.
