Biography

 

James Hopgood is a Senior Lecturer in the Institute for Digital Communications, within the School of Engineering, at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland. His research specialisation include model-based Bayesian signal processing, speech and audio signal processing in adverse acoustic environments, including blind dereverberation and multi-target acoustic source localisation and tracking, single channel signal separation, distant speech recognition, audio-visual fusion, medical imaging, blind image deconvolution, and general statistical signal and image processing. James received the M.A., M.Eng. degree in Electrical and Information Sciences in 1997 and a Ph.D. in July 2001 in Statistical Signal Processing, part of Information Engineering, both from the University of Cambridge, England. He was then a Post-Doctoral Research Associate for the year after his Ph.D within the same group, at which point he became a Research Fellow at Queens’ College continuing his research in the Signal Processing Laboratory in Cambridge. James joined the University of Edinburgh in April 2004. Since September 2011, he is Editor-in-Chief for the IET Journal of Signal Processing.
