Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am a Lecturer in the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering. In particular, I am the Leonardo Lecturer on a 5-year joint program between the University of Strathclyde and the UK-based security and defence company Leonardo MW Ltd. I have also been awarded a Chancellor’s Fellowship at the University of Strathclyde.

Having completed a PhD in video analytics for smart surveillance, in the Centre for Signal and Image Processing, within the Electronic and Electrical Engineering 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 and Machine Learning for Autonomous Systems and Human-Machine Interaction; Biosignal Driven Intelligent Systems and Healthcare; Embedded Systems and Neuromorphic Technologies. I currently supervise a number of PhD students working on various applications within these three broad research areas, and I am Principal Investigator and Co-Investigator on various projects in collaboration with national and international partners.

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

And I am course director for the MSc in Machine Learning and Deep Learning, at University of Strathclyde. This is a joint MSc program between the Electronic and Electrical Engineering Department, and the Computer and Information Sciences Department, at Strathclyde.
