DR ALISTAIR DRAKE

Dr Alistair Drake presents the Biological Effects section of the course and also teaches some of the tutorial and practical sessions. His research involves designing, constructing and operating radars that are used for biological investigations; he also teaches an Honours-level course on radar meteorology. Dr Drake follows the research literature on biological effects of RF radiation to keep abreast of developments and to ensure his lectures remain current.

 

DR DAVID LOW

Dr David Low has over 15 years experience with radar systems and meteorology. He is a co-developer of the RFRSO course, specialising in the general calculation and radar theory components. His research interests are centred on the ground-based remote-sensing of atmospheric processes, including turbulence, convection, wave motions and local flows.
