Personal profile


Roberto Togneri (M89-SM04) received the Ph.D degree in 1989 from the University of Western Australia. He joined the School of Electrical, Electronic and Computer Engineering at The University of Western Australia in 1988, where he is now currently an Associate Professor. He leads the Signal Processing and Recognition Lab and his research activities in signal processing and pattern recognition include: feature learning, detection and enhancement of audio signals, statistical and neural network models for speech and speaker recognition, audio-visual recognition and biometrics, and related aspects of language modelling and understanding. He has published over 150 refereed journal and conference papers in the areas of signal processing and recognition, the chief investigator on three Australian Research Council Discovery Project research grants, and is currently the Area Editor for IEEE Signal Processing Magazine Columns and Forums.
