Dr Vladimir Stankovic


Electronic and Electrical Engineering

Personal statement

I have been focusing on graphical methods to perform signal representation, characterisation, modelling, and analysis. I am working on translating the fundamental research findings into development of practical Artificial Intelligence (AI)-driven engineering solutions for a wide range of global and national challenges, including energy efficiency, landslides monitoring via seismic signal analysis, and health and well-being. 


Has expertise in:


    • Energy disaggregation
    • Seismic signal analysis
    • Interpretable machine learning
    • Graph signal processing
    • Motion analysis
    • Multimedia processing and communications
