Research interests

Future radar systems

      With the growing overcrowding of the spectrum, new threats (e.g. UAVs near airports) and the need for spectrum reuse, there is a need in developing novel radar systems that can evolve in that environment and communicate amonst themselves. This starts with developing the radar spectrum sensing and actively communicating with neighboring radars or communication nodes to collaborate and fuse information. These functions have to be executed alongside radar functions and switch from on mode to another or combine several modes together in its operation via resource management . Having a software defined radar 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. We explore waveform design, MIMO, multistism, and polarisation to that end.

 

Activity Recognition and vital signs monitoring: healthcare and veterinary applications

      Research applications include the analysis of human and animal radar signatures across different domains of data representations for classification and vital sign monitoring. This can be applied to classify different activities (walking, running, human interactions), as well as healthcare (e.g. fall detection, activities of daily living, and out-patient follow up care) and lameness assessment for precision livestock farming (cattle, sheep) and leisure/race horses.

 

I am always glad to discuss with good students research opportunities to come and study in Glasgow
