Dr Lina Stankovic

Senior Lecturer

Electronic and Electrical Engineering

Personal statement

My research expertise is in Signal information Processing and Data Science, with focus on developing and applying time-series, signal information processing and machine learning tools to make sense of raw sensor data. This includes signal and data representation, processing, analysis, communications and management. My research is aligned with the University strategic research themes of Energy, Health & Well-Being and Measurement Science and Enabling Technologies.

I am also 1st year advisor of studies for the Computer and Electronic Systems degree at Strathclyde.


Has expertise in:

    Communications and Signal information processing, as applied to:

    • Energy and environment in smart buildings, e.g., load monitoring, load profiling and disaggregation, activity recognition
    • Motion capture and person-centric kinematrics analysis using portable depth and infrared camera systems
    • Micro-seismic event detection and analytics
    • Wireless sensor network solutions for civil infrastructure, such as predicting failure in earthworks (embankments and cuttings) and bridge/scour monitoring
    • Water consumption, treatment and infrastructure monitoring

Prizes and awards

Finalist of the World first 10K Best paper Award (Top 3%)
Paper awarded top 5% by reviewers in Eusipco-2010 conference and invited for journal publication.
