Biography Justin King was born in Dublin, Ireland. He obtained the BE degree in Electronic Engineering from University College Dublin (UCD) in 2006. In 2012 he was awarded the PhD degree from UCD for his doctoral thesis on Nonlinear electrothermal equivalent circuit modelling of AlGaN/GaN devices with applications to power amplifier design. Dr King then commenced a postdoctoral research fellowship in the UCD RF and Microwave Research Group and continued to work on device modelling, with emphasis now on behavioural modelling techniques. During this time he also acted as a part-time lecturer for the School of Electrical, Electronic and Communications Engineering.
In 2014 Dr King became a lecturer in the School of Electrical, Electronic and Communications Engineering in conjunction with the Beijing-Dublin International College. He spends one semester each year lecturing in Beijing University of Technology (BJUT), delivering modules for the new Internet-of-Things Engineering degree programme.


Research Interests His research interests are in the broad area of device modelling and simulation. They include nonlinear electrothermal device modelling with emphasis on modern high-power gallium nitride (GaN) and GaN-on-Silicon device technologies; modern behavioural device modelling; high-frequency nonlinear time- and frequency-domain circuit simulation algorithms; and power amplifier design using broadband impedance synthesis techniques.
