Projects per year
Based in the Centre for Signal and Image Processing (CeSIP), my team and I work on the analysis, design and implementation of signal processing algorithms. I have been a Reader in CeSIP from 2006-2016, and previously worked as a Lecturer and Senior Lecturer at the University of Southamption from 1999-2006, as a Visiting Lecturer at Strathclyde in 1998/99 and as a Visiting Scholar at the Unversity of Southern California in 1996/97.
My research interests lie in digital signal processing (DSP), where I am interested in a variety of problems in adaptive, array, and multirate DSP. My particular curiosity are multi-channel, broadband systems, and a significant portion of my research team is working within this area.
I was co-organiser and technical chair for the European Signal Processing Conference (EUSIPCO) 2009 in Glasgow, and general chair for the 18th IEEE International Symposium on Power Line Communications and Its Applications (ISPLC) 2014 in Glasgow and for the 2nd IEE/EURASIP DSP enable Radio Conference 2005 in Southampton. I am also part of the organising committee for the IEEE International Conference on Acoustics, Speech and Signal Processing (ICASSP) 2019 in Brighton.

Part of my research is concerned with the implementation of signal processing algorithms and systems. For example, as part of the Loughborough/Surrey/Strathclyde/Cardiff EPSRC/Dstl consortium for advanced signal processing solutions in a networked battlespace, I am responsible for efficient implementations of advanced solutions, together with the industrial partners Mathworks, Texas Instruments, and Prismtech. Also, through my engagement in the Centre for White Space Communications, I am contributing to rural broadband access solutions that have been deployed in collaboration with BT and the BBC.
