Professor Lina Stankovic

Electronic and Electrical Engineering


Personal statement

My research expertise is in Signal and Information Processing, with focus on representation, processing, analysis, communications and data management of information in a range of signals including electrical signals, video,  seismic/geoscience, health/biological and other environmental sensor data. Smart meter energy analytics directly impact energy efficiency in the home and non-residential buildings including agriclture, demand response, environmental impact assessment and net zero GHG emissions. Seismic signal analysis directly impacts mitigation of the effects of climate change and human activity on slope failures, with repercussions on civil infrastructure and transport.  

Overall my research interests revolve around finding patterns in and mining information from noisy, multi modal sensor data. My work is particularly aligned with the following university strategic research themes (Measurement Science & Enabling Technologies, Energy, Health & Well-Being)

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