Additional information

Erica Utsi studied mathematics and archaeology at the Universities of St. Andrews and Cambridge respectively. Subsequently, she co-founded Utsi Electronics, a specialist electronics company which designs and produces Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) systems for general use and specialist and novel applications, retiring from the company in 2015.

She is currently Principal of EMC Radar Consulting, and a former chairman of the European Ground Penetrating Radar Association, in which capacity she represented manufacturers, users and universities using GPR to outside bodies, including the European Radio Spectrum Committee, the European Telecommunications Standards Institute, and Ofcom.

She has worked with bodies as diverse as UK Police Forces, structural and civil engineers, utility companies, bereaved relatives of abductees, and the Supreme Council for Antiquities, Cairo. She has appeared on BBC and Channel 4 television and has recently authored “Ground Penetrating Radar Theory and Practice”, a definitive work for both GPR practitioners and those commissioning GPR surveys.

Erica has been carrying out an ongoing investigation into the hidden secrets of Westminster Abbey over the last 13 years, and conducted the GPR work on the first archaeological investigation of Shakespeare’s grave at Holy Trinity Church in Stratford-on-Avon.
