I am a Lecturer in Applied Data Science and Signal Processing at QMUL. I am a member of the Centre for Intelligent Sensing (CIS), a member of Institute of Coding (IoC), and an associate member of the Machine Listening Lab. Previously I was a Postdoc at QMUL (2014-17) and a Postdoc at University of Sussex (2017-18), and was Alexander von Humboldt Fellow at University of Oldenburg Germany (2011-13). I obtained my PhD in Signal Processing at Dalian University of Technology China (2010).
My research focuses on audio and visual signal processing, robotic perception and machine learning. I developed microphone array techniques for sound enhancement, source localizaiton and blind source separtation. I developed audio-visual signal processing techniques for acoustic sensing from flying robots (mini-drones). I applied machine learning techniques to human activity and context recogntiion from wearable sensors (motion, GPS, sound and image).
