Mike's reseach focuses on speech processing and computer vision. Within the area of speech processing, he has concentrated on the modelling and analysis of speech signals, the extraction of features for speech and speaker recognition and, most recently, on the enhancement of poor quality speech signals. Between 2007 and 2012, he was the Director of the Home Office sponsored Centre for Law Enforcement Audio Research (CLEAR) which investigated techniques for processing heavily corrupted speech signals. In computer vision he led a successful MoD-funded project on radar target recognition in partnership with General Dynamics and Qinetiq and is currently working on a number of computer vision projects concerned with change detection and image-based rendering from multiperspective camera systems.
