Short Biography
Evan Magill is Professor of Computing at the University of Stirling. His main research interests include Healthcare and Homecare, Wireless Sensor Networks, Home networks, Middleware, Voice over IP, Communications service creation, and Feature Interactions.
With a decade working in industry, both in Canada and the UK, his career spans both industry and academe in both Engineering and Computing Science. Professor Magill maintains active research links with a range of companies.
Evan has run a number of research projects with EPSRC, EU, KTP (TCS) and industrial funding. He has co-chaired the premier international conference on Feature Interaction, chaired a number of IET colloquia, and is a founding member of a government funded UK-wide network of academics and industrialists on service creation. He served on the local organising committee for the IEEE ICC conference held in Scotland in 2007.
Professor Magill was the institutional lead on the recent EPSRC funded project PAM. This joint project with Nottingham and Southampton investigates the role of technology for the ambient monitoring of psychiatric patients at home. He was also institutional PI on InterLife. This ESRC/EPSRC funded project aims to provide social and educational support through an extension of the popular Second Life virtual world. (See this short film for more details.) He is an investigator in the SFC funded project MATCH. This joint project with Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow investigates the role of technology in assisting care in the home. He was an investigator with the EPSRC funded project. PROSEN. This joint project with Essex, Lancaster and Strathclyde is investigating wireless sensor networks within a wind farm setting. He was also the lead academic on a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) with Sysnet. This looks at a novel application of mobile phone technology. He also maintains an interest in public engagement and was PI on the EPSRC funded project "Waiter there really is a computer in my soup and it's telephoning me!": Revealing invisible computers.". This project is a collaboration with the School of Education at the University of Glasgow, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland,and Glasgow Science Centre.
Evan is a member of the MACS (Modelling and Analysis of Complex Systems) research group and is the current Head of Division.
Throughout his academic career Evan Magill has actively published in International Journals and Conferences. Many of his papers are available online. Additionally, some corresponding conference presentations are available too.
