Stephen McLaughlin was born in Clydebank, Scotland in 1960. He received the B.Sc. degree in Electronics and Electrical Engineering from the University of Glasgow in 1981 and the Ph.D. degree from the University of Edinburgh in 1989. From 1981 to 1984 he was a Development Engineer with Barr & Stroud Ltd. (Glasgow) involved in the design and simulation of integrated thermal imaging and fire control systems. From 1984 to 1986 he worked on the design and development of high frequency data communication systems with MEL Ltd. In 1986 he joined the Dept. of Electrical Engineering at the University of Edinburgh as a research associate where he studied the performance of linear adaptive algorithms in high noise and nonstationary environments. In 1988 he joined the teaching staff at Edinburgh, and in 1991 he was awarded a Royal Society University Research Fellowship to study nonlinear signal processing techniques. His research interests lie in the fields of adaptive signal processing and nonlinear dynamical systems theory and their applications to biomedical, communication and geophysical systems. Prof. McLaughlin is a FREng, FRSE, FIET, SMIEEE and a Chartered Engineer.
