Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am a Lecturer in the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, and Associate Fellow of the HEA. In particular, I am the Leonardo Lecturer on a joint program (2019-2023) between Strathclyde and the security and defence company Leonardo UK.

Having completed a PhD in video analytics for smart surveillance, in the Centre for Signal and Image Processing, within the EEE Department at Strathclyde, my background and areas of expertise reside in signal, image and video processing, with particular emphasis on biosignal and imaging, and multi-dimensional signals. My current research interests are in Signal Processing, Neuromorphic Technologies, Machine Learning, and Embedded Systems. I am Director of the Neuromorphic Sensor Signal Processing Lab (NSSP, https://nssp.eee.strath.ac.uk) in the EEE Department, supervising a number of PhD students working on various applications within these broad research areas. I am Principal Investigator and Co-Investigator on various projects in collaboration with national and international partners.

As part of my engagement with Leonardo UK, my role is to expand and strengthen the collaborative links between Strathclyde and Leonardo, in terms of research programs, undergraduate and Msc projects, and recruitment-oriented activities.

I am also Course Director of the MSc in Machine Learning and Deep Learning, at University of Strathclyde. This is a joint MSc program between the EEE Department and the Computer and Information Sciences Department at Strathclyde.

I welcome fully funded PhD applicants who would like to carry out research in Signal Processing, Neuromorphic Technologies, Machine Learning, and Embedded Systems.

A fully funded EPSRC ICASE 4-year PhD studentship, in collaboration with Leonardo UK, is currently available for UK nationals only (MORE INFO HERE).
