Dr Daniel Nankoo
Dr Daniel Nankoo was born in Harrow, Middlesex. He received a BEng degree in Control, Instrumentation and Systems Engineering from City University London in 1994. He continued his studies at City and in 1995 was awarded an MSc in Information Engineering. He then stayed at City as a research assistant and worked in the Control Engineering Research Centre on various projects.
In 2003, he completed an EPSRC funded PhD in Linear Systems and Control Structure Selection. After a one year break teaching English in Crete, Daniel returned to City University London in 2005 to work as a part time lecturer. He was rewarded with a lectureship in 2007.
He is responsible for the delivery of first year Electronics modules, as well as a final year module in Electrical Energy Systems. He coordinates the final year projects in the EEIE subject area. He is also responsible for the management of the Electrical Engineering Foundation Year in partnership with City and Islington College.
His research interest involves railway systems, which include signalling, electrical traction power and traffic management systems. His ambition is to create a multidisciplinary Railway Research Centre at City University London. He already has several final year undergraduate students working in this area, where they are designing automatic signalling systems, efficient traction motor control systems, railway traffic management systems and hydrogen fuel cell powered locomotives - all of which are based at present on model trains and tracks. He hopes that one day this small scale group will develop into the real thing.
