Personal statement

I am a Reader at the University of Strathclyde working on Sensor Signal Processing.  In particular my research is focussed on sensor signal processing for defence and civilian applications, with a specific interest on Radar signal processing. I am currently involved in defence projects, collaborating with governmental institutions,  industries and  universities from the USA, China and Europe. 
My research portfolio comprise Automatic Target Recognition, Multi-static, MIMO , Passive and Cognitive radars and all the techniques that can be classified as emerging radar techniques. Furthermore I am interested in transferring  the solutions developed in the defence and security scenarios to other fields such as industrial condition monitoring and bio-medical signal processing.


Has expertise in:

    • Signal Processing
    • Statistical Signal Processing
    • Radar Imaging
    • Multistatic Radar
    • Micro-Doppler analysis
    • Automatic Target Recognition
    • CFAR detection from Synthetic Aperture Radar
