Michael joined Dehns in September 2023 from the world of academia, having previously worked as a research associate at Jodrell Bank Observatory and later as a Specialist at the Square Kilometre Array Observatory. His academic background in physics and astrophysics was blended with a heavily technology-based research career including development in analogue and digital electronics, cryogenics and receiver design including high-frequency phased arrays, in addition to the bread-and-butter of traditional radio astronomical observing that later led him to engage with radio spectrum regulation in his most recent role.
