Personal profile

Personal Statement

Since April 2016 I have been employed as Lecturer at the University of Strathclyde working on Sensor Signal Processing.  In particular my research is focussed on sensor signal processing for defence and civilian applications, with a specific interest on Radar signal processing. I am currently involved in defence projects, collaborating with governmental institutions,  industries and  universities from the USA, China and Europe. 
My research portfolio comprise Automatic Target Recognition, Multi-static, MIMO , Passive and Cognitive radars and all the techniques that can be classified as emerging radar techniques. Furthermore I am interested in transferring  the migration of the solutions developed in the defence and security scenarios to other fields such as industrial condition monitoring and bio-medical signal processing.

Research Interests

My research interests lies in: signal processing, statistical signal processing, sparse representation, image processing,  advanced radar techniques, micro-Doppler signature analsysis and extraction, Automatic Target Recognition, MIMO radar signal processing and waveform design.
