  • Timothy O’Farrell is Chair Professor in Wireless Communications at the University of Sheffield, UK.

    He is an expert in wireless communication systems specialising in physical layer signal processing, radio resource management and wireless network planning. He has pioneered research on energy efficient mobile cellular communications, the mathematical modelling of CSMA based MAC protocols for WiFi, iterative block coding for wireless communication systems and spreading sequence design for CDMA wireless networks.

    He is an entrepreneur, being the cofounder and CTO of Supergold Communication (2000-2007), a start-up that participated in the standardisation of IEEE 802.11g with the MBCK proposal. In the framework of Mobile VCE (mVCE), Professor O’Farrell was the Academic Coordinator of the Core 5 Green Radio project (2009-2012) and a leader in establishing energy efficiency as a global research field in wireless communication systems.

    He has managed 20 major research projects as principle investigator; he has published over 230 journal and conference papers; published 15 patents; and has participated in standards, consultancies and expert witness activities within the wireless sector.

    Currently, Professor O’Farrell is a member of the mVCE Steering Group where he leads the Modus Operandi Focus Group responsible for translating mVCE’s research vision into strategic research roadmaps and programmes. Professor O’Farrell is a Chartered Engineer and a member of the IET and IEEE.
