Research Overview


  • Current research interests include single and multichannel speech signal processing, speech and audio coding, spatial audio signal processing, multimedia Quality of Experience (QoE) and signal processing for new media services.

    Current projects include spatial and multichannel speech and audio signal processing and compression, acoustic vectors sensors and other co-located microphone arrays for sound source localisation and enhancement, microphone array signal processing, semantic analysis and processing of multimedia content, perceptual processing and Quality of Experience (QoE) estimation for media content.

    I am a member of the Visual and Audio Signal Processing Lab, part of the ICT Research Institute. I am also the director of the University of Wollongong’s anechoic recording and playback facility.
