I am currently an academic with Department of Engineering, School of Technology, University of Wolverhampton. I was recently with School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering, University of Essex and still collaborate on many projects with Essex.

My research area is on biological signal processing, mainly signals from the brain and heart. I study these signals (such as EEG, PCG and ECG) for several applications: brain-computer interface, biometrics, electrophysiological analysis, cardiovascular disease diagnosis and stress management. I utilise tools such as advanced signal processing and machine learning (such as neural networks and genetic algorithms) in my work. 


Do contact me if you are interested in any aspect of my work, for example if you would like to do a PhD or would like to collaborate with me.
