Professor Mahesan Niranjan is part of the Institute for Life Sciences at the University of Southampton.

I joined the University of Southampton in February 2008 as a professor in the School of Electronics and Computer Science and served as Head of the Information: Signals, Images and Systems (ISIS) research group. This is the only research group I know of which has a colon (':') in its name, which must be something special, but I could never figure out what it was.

The group has now been absorbed into the Communications, Signal Processing and Control research group, of which I am a harmless member.

Prior to joining Southampton, I have worked for the University of Cambridge as a Lecturer in Information Engineering (1990-1998), and the University of Sheffield as Professor of Computer Science (1999-2007). At Sheffield I also served as Head of Computer Science (Feb 2002 - Aug 2004) and Dean of Engineering (Aug 2006 - Jan 2008). I have fun memories from these periods of what now feels like 'extended maternity leave'.
