Research interests

Software defined radar – enabling radar networks

      Developing a radar system that can sense its environment and actively communicate with neighboring radars or communication nodes. This would be done in conjuncture to normal radar operation. Having a software defined radio platform to do this would mean that the radar could dynamically change its operating mode to fit the task at hand by acting via software on both hardware and processing configurations.

 

Gait analysis of humans and animals with radar

      Research applications include the analysis of human and animal micro-Doppler signatures extracted from radar data for classification. This can be applied to classify different activities (walking, running, human interactions), as well as healthcare with fall detection or animal gait analysis for veterinary applications.
