Personal statement

The goal of my research is to open novel scientific horizons by bringing together communications, multimedia, signal processing, machine learning, and energy via problem-solving research and through advanced user-centric design approaches.

My research broadly consists of developing novel theoretical foundations, algorithmic and system design solutions, as well as practical demonstrations for efficient acquisition, processing and communications of data. The work ranges from core signal/image processing, information and communication theory and machine learning research necessary for establishing performance limits and developing algorithms to practical system designs through implementation, visualization and user-centric design methods. I am particularly interested in energy-aware and environmentally-oriented information and communication technology (ICT): from low-power acquisition, processing, and communications, to application-driven data analysis for healthcare monitoring and smart homes/buildings.

BTG: Development of a visually immersive gait training system for use in the walking rehabilitation of stroke survivors combining the scientific disciplines of biomechanics and motor learning
Kerr, Andy (Academic) Grealy, Madeleine (Academic) Stankovic, Vladimir (Academic) Murphy, Andrew James (Academic) Childs, Craig (Academic) Rowe, Philip (Academic)
The installation of a CAREN (computer assisted rehabilitation environment) system within the Biomedical Engineering department offers the opportunity to develop specific rehabilitation applications for commercial exploitation and clinical research. Stroke survivors are one of the biggest users of rehabilitation services with around 1.1 million survivors in the UK. Walking is a high priority for this population but most do not recover independent walking. This project aims to combine expertise across the University along with a users’ panel of stroke survivors to co-produce a prototype gait training application ready for marketing, through an existing commercial partner, and suitable for clinical research.
