Dr 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. Besides the Energy dimension of the work, the research insights gained are also applicable to appliance manufacturing and food systems, especially in relation to environmental impact assessment and net zero GHG emissions. Overall my research interests revolve around sustainability. 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.


Has expertise in:

    Signal information processing with application to the following problems:

    • Non-intrusive load monitoring, load profiling and disaggregation, activity recognition in smart buildings (Energy and environment)
    • Motion capture and person-centric kinematrics analysis using portable depth and infrared camera systems (Health & Wellbeing)
    • Micro-seismic event analysis, inc. earthquakes (Geosciences)
    • 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.
