Dr Jacqueline Walker
Observation & Operations
Dr Jacqueline Walker B.A., B.E. (Hons I), PhD is an expert in synchronization, time and frequency transfer. Dr Walker also has expertise in biomedical, speech and music signal processing, including postgraduate research student supervision and involvement in funded research projects. She has been a Lecturer at the University of Limerick for 20 years, teaching a number of courses in Computer and Electronic Engineering and Information Technology. Within MaREI she is a funded investigator in Renewable energy and a supervisor on MaREI Platform funded PhD project.
Dr Jacqueline Walker is supervising a Platform funded PhD project to develop a software-defined radio communications platform to improve the ability to monitor and manage remote renewable energy infrastructure. The research will also study the potential application of such a platform for facilitating global and co-ordinated control of large wave energy converter arrays, studying the effect of bandwidth, noise and packet loss on performance comparing with predictions from theoretical analysis.
Dr Jacqueline Walker is an expert in synchronization, time and frequency transfer. She has made significant contributions in communications systems research in using timestamps for timing transfer and to techniques reducing the probability of metastable failure in digital systems. Dr Walker has also worked in biomedical, speech and music signal processing, including postgraduate research student supervision and as Principal Investigator in funded research projects and including with an Irish start-up company on a system for one-way time transfer over geostationary satellites. She is a Lecturer in the Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering at the University of Limerick where she has more than 20 years of experience teaching on both undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Computer and Electronic Engineering and Information Technology covering a very wide range of topics including computer programming, digital electronics, communications and signal processing and cloud computing.
