Signal and Information Processing Research


Our primary aim is to develop techniques to interpret, understand and act on information contained in the data. Our work is also notable for the exploitation of the synergy that exists in multimedia and multimodal data.

The interests of the theme are in developing signal processing for vision, multimedia and biomedical data analysis. Our focus lies in the mathematical advancement of nonlinear signal processing theory and its applications extend far beyond traditional techniques.

Our signal and information processing research can be subdivided as follows:

We are also part of the University Defence Research Collaboration.
