Biography

Michael Neve received the BE(Hons) and the PhD degrees from the University of Auckland in 1988 and 1993 respectively.

From May 1993 to May 1994, he was Leverhulme Visiting Fellow at the University of Birmingham, UK. During this time, he was involved with radiowave propagation research using scaled environmental models. From May 1994 to May 1996 he was a New Zealand Science and Technology Post-Doctoral Fellow within the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of Auckland. From May 1996 to December 2000 he was a part-time Lecturer/Senior Research Engineer in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of Auckland. In 2004 he was a Visiting Scientist at the CSIRO ICT Centre in Sydney, Australia and is presently a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at The University of Auckland.  From January 2012 to December 2014 he was Associate Dean (Postgraduate) in the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Auckland.

His present research interests include radiowave propagation modelling in cellular/microcellular/indoor environments, the interaction of electromagnetic fields with building structures, cellular system performance optimization and antennas. He was jointly awarded a 1992/93 IEE Electronics Letters Premium for two publications resulting from his doctoral research.
