Research Themes

Research interests

My interest is in human and machine perception with emphasis on problems related to pattern recognition, signal processing and modelling. I focus on the development of intelligent algorithms and interface design. My work lies at the intersection of biomedical, computer and communications engineering. Students working in my group typically have an interdisciplinary approach with interests in signal processing, algorithm design, modelling and psychology.

Keywords: vision, hearing, speech, information theory, time-frequency analysis, pattern analysis, multimodal fusion
