Keith graduated in 1972 from Imperial College, London, UK, with an Honours Degree in Electrical Engineering.
He has been a member of the IEE/IET since 1977 and of the IEEE since 1997, and was appointed both Fellow of the IET and Senior Member of the IEEE in 2010.
After working for others for 18 years, in 1990 Keith started Cherry Clough Consultants to help companies reduce project costs and timescales, and also reduce warranty costs and other financial risks, through the use of well-proven signal integrity, power integrity and EMC engineering design and manufacturing techniques. So far he has had over 900 satisfied customers, in almost all types of applications, all over the world.
In 2018 he was first person to receive the new IEEE award: “Excellence in Continuing EMC Engineering Education, for continuing education in EMC, signal integrity, and power integrity from a practically based point of view”.
Keith chaired the team that produced the IET’s “2017 Code of Practice on Electromagnetic Resilience in Support of Functional Safety”; and the team that produced IEEE Std 1848:2020 “Techniques and Measures to Manage Functional Safety and Other Risks with Regard to Electromagnetic Disturbances”.
