In this episode we conclude the two-part discussion I had with Dr. Nicholas Outram. In this episode we discuss embedded systems, third-party hardware tools used to teach Swift, and possible outcomes for post-secondary educators having students who already know some computer science basics. Dr. Outram obtained a first-class (hons) degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering in 2002, then later a Ph.D. in Biomedical Signal Processing from the University of Plymouth, UK in 1997.
He worked as a Development Engineer first with Wandle and Goltermann, focusing on real-time DSP software and hardware, then as a Systems Engineer with Neoventa Medical AB, focusing on development of fixed-point DSP for real-time signal processing of Ultrasound and Fetal ECG. Worked on design and validation of real-time signal processing algorithms, and later refocused back onto research into methods for quantification of fetal heart rate reactivity.
He is now an Associate Professor in Computing and Electronics, at the University of Plymouth, specialising in iOS Development, embedded systems and digital systems design. I would like to thank Dr. Outram for taking time out of his busy schedule to talk with me.
