Understanding shielding and shielding materials along with the ability to apply this understanding is critical to all systems that rely on electronics – pretty much everything we do!

John Dawson left school at 16 and undertook a technician apprenticeship with the Ministry of Defence. After completing the apprenticeship he went on to Study Electronics at the University of York, and after that whilst working on his PhD in HF communications, set up a company to develop custom electronic systems for industry. Later he returned to York as an academic and started his research in EMC, whilst teaching a wide range of electronics courses. During that period he also consulted for a spinout company giving courses on EMC and computational electromagnetics to industry and solving EMC problems.
Much of his research has focussed on shielding and coupling problems, from predicting the shielding of enclosures, through understanding of novel materials, to developing and using computational techniques. You can find more about his work and publications from the York research database.
