Prof. Patryk Kot (Editor-in-Chief)

Prof Patryk Kot graduated from Liverpool John Moores University with a BSc (Hons) in Computer Technology, MSc in Microelectronic Systems Design and a PhD entitled “The feasibility of using EM waves in determining the moisture content and factors effecting measurements in building fabrics”, completed in 2017. From 2016, he worked as a Research Assistant within the Built Environment and Sustainable Technologies (BEST) Research Institute working on Healthcare sensor technologies, underwater sensing and energy from waste. In 2017, he became a Senior Lecturer in Civil Engineering, in 2019 he became a Reader in Sensor Technologies at Liverpool John Moores University within the school of Civil Engineering and Built Environment. In 2021, he became a Professor of Microwave Sensor technologies and Deputy Director of BEST Research Institute whilst leading multiple externally funded research projects in structural health monitoring, cultural heritage and material characterisation.


Dr. Jakub Markiewicz (Co-Editor-in-Chief)

Dr Jakub Markiewicz graduated from Warsaw University of Technology with a BSc in Geodesy and Cartography, MSc (Eng) in Geodesy and Cartography and a PhD (Hons) completed in 2018. From 2012, he worked as a Research Assistant with the Faculty of Geodesy and Cartography, Department of Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing and Spatial Information System. In 2018, he became an Assistant Professor. His area of expertise involves computer vision, photogrammetry and surveying, TLS techniques in management and preservation of cultural heritage, archival multisource and multitemporal documentation, 3D modelling and 3D Visualisation, point clouds and geospatial data processing, photogrammetric/architectural and archaeological documentation and data integration for different purposes. His a: member of CIPA Heritage Documentation (ordinary member), Advisory council of Polish Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing, in the council / board / committee etc. of a professional body, in: Computer Applications and Quantitative Methods in Archaeology – Poland (CAA Poland), of the Association of Polish Surveyors (SGP).


Dr. Magomed Muradov (Co-Editor-in-Chief)

Dr Magomed Muradov graduated from Liverpool John Moores University, School of Engineering, with a BSc (Hons) in Computer Technology in 2012, followed by an MSc in Microelectronic System Design within the same school. He then obtained a PhD entitled “Prediction of Water Activity in Cured Meat using Microwave Spectroscopy” at LJMU, in 2017. Once he completed his PhD, he joined the LCR4.0 programme as an industrial software specialist – delivering the project on behalf of Sensor City Liverpool Limited – supporting companies in the Liverpool City Region to adopt industry 4.0 technologies (support with software/hardware development, prototyping/product development, sensors/systems integration and IoT). This involved engagement with SMEs to identify and provide a solution to their industrial challenges, providing support ranging from research and development, knowledge transfer and the acceleration of ideas from concept through to commercialisation. His team has worked with and supported over 30 companies within 2.5 years, which has led to creation of new jobs, new products to the firms and market. After successfully delivering the LCR4.0 project in September 2019, Magomed joined LJMU as a lecturer within the Faculty of Engineering and Technology. In addition, Magomed is actively involved in an academic research, which focuses on non-destructive measurements/sensing based on microwave technologies in a number of sectors, namely food quality control, structural health monitoring and healthcare.
