University profile


My research interests cover a wide range of topics in signal processing, including:

  • Sensor (antenna, hydrophone, microphone, seismometer etc).

  • Array signal processing (beamforming, direction of arrival estimation, tracking and localisation).

  • Blind signal processing (source separation/extraction).

  • Multirate signal processing (filter banks and wavelets).

I am interested in their various applications, such as wireless communications, satellite navigation, radar, sonar, biomedical engineering, speech enhancement, human computer interface, big data analytics, and renewable energy exploitation.
