Dave Pearce is a teaching fellow responsible for the teaching of communications at both undergraduate and postgraduate level in the Department of Electronics at the University of York, and led the development of the successful Communications Engineering MSc programme. His teaching interests include mathematics, internet protocols and socket programming, mobile communication systems, wireless modems and radio propagation.
He started his career working in communications at Plessey Research Roke Manor in 1985, then in 1990 joined Madge Networks where he was responsible for the design of 802.5 token ring network hubs, switches and bridges, as well as for the physical layer implementation on a network interface card that sold over one million units. During this time he played a leading role on the IEEE 802.5 standardisation committee. From 1996 to 1998 he researched into fixed wireless access systems at the University of York. He was appointed a lecturer in 1998 and a teaching fellow in 2011.
His research interests are in the interaction of Internet protocols with wireless layer access protocols and resource management schemes; cross-layer design and optimisation; cognitive radio, wireless resource allocation and spectrum management.
