Biography

Dr. Sanei is currently a Visiting Reader of the Department. He received his PhD from Imperial College of Science, Technology, and Medicine, London, in Biomedical Signal and Image Processing in 1991. Since then he has been a member of academic staff in Iran, Singapore, and the United Kingdom (King's College London, Cardiff University, and University of Surrey). He is an internationally known expert in signal processing, biomedical signal processing (Neuroscience & Neurotechnology), and pattern recognition. His recent research contributions have been in the areas of compressive sensing, spatial filtering and beamforming, constrained blind source separation (BSS) in multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) environments, tensor factorisation, constrained optimisation, non-linear prediction and analysis of dynamical changes using chaos theory, with application to analysis of brain signals and images (particularly brain-computer interfacing), gait recognition, sound and video data, body sensor networking, and source localisation and tracking. 

He has published more than 320 refereed journal and conference papers (including a number of invited papers). He published three books (research monograms) entitled “EEG Signal Processing” and "Adaptive Processing of Brain Signals" both with John Wiley Publisher in 2007 and 2013 respectively and "Singular Spectrum Analysis of Biomedical Signals", with CRC Publisher in 2015. He has been the and Co-organiser and Finance Chair of the IEEE Statistical Signal Processing Conference, SSP2001, Singapore, the organiser of the 15th International Conference on Digital Signal Processing, DSP2007, Cardiff, UK, Organiser and Chair of IEEE Statistical Signal Processing Workshop, SSP2009, Cardiff, UK, Honorary Chair of Biosignals 2010, Valencia, Spain and General Chair of joint IEEE Machine Learning for Signal Processing (MLSP2013) Workshop and LVA/ICA Conference, Southampton, UK, 2013. He will be the Technical Co-chair of EUSIPCO 2016, Budapest, Hungary, and General Chair and Organiser of IEEE ICASSP 2019 in Brighton, UK. He has served as the Guest Editor and Associate Editor of the Journal of Computational Intelligence and Neuroscience special issue in EEG Signal Processing and three other journals, Associate Editor of IEEE Signal Processing Letters, a Member of the Steering, Advisory, and Technical Committees of many prestigious conferences. He is the UK EURASIP Liaison Officer. He has supervised over 30 PhD and a number of Post-doctoral Research Assistants, MSc and MPhil by research students. 

Research Interests

Dr Sanei's research interest is developing and application of advanced digital signal processing and pattern recognition techniques with major applications in neuroscience and neurotechnology. These include adaptive filtering, tensor factorisation, blind source separation, compressive sensing, convex and global optimisation, channel estimation, identification, and deconvolution, clustering and classification, modelling, beamforming, data fusion, non-linear prediction, and analysis of dynamical changes using chaos theory, with applications to analysis of brain signals and images, gait recognition, sound (speech, music) and video data, brain-computer interfacing (BCI), source localisation and tracking, and many other acoustic, biomedical, and communication data.
