Sarah Johnson received the B.E. (Hons) degree in electrical engineering in 2000, and PhD in 2004, both from the University of Newcastle, Australia. She then held a postdoctoral position with the Wireless Signal Processing Program, National ICT Australia before returning to the University of Newcastle where she is a senior research fellow. Sarah's research interests are in the field of error correction and information theory, and in particular low-density parity-check codes, repeat-accumulate codes, iterative decoding algorithms and network coding. She is the author of a book on iterative error correction published by Cambridge University Press.
