Signal and Information Processing (SIP) Lab

About the SIP Lab


The Signal and Information Processing (SIP) Lab comprises faculty, post-doctoral researchers, Ph.D. and MSc students working in the broad area of signal/information processing and machine learning involving images, videos, and audio with applications to biometrics, security, forensics, and surveillance. Our research focus is on the following areas:

  • Video analytics for surveillance and security
  • Face analysis
  • Emotion and behavior analysis
  • Learning-based Visual Data Compression
  • DeepFake images for biometrics
  • DeepFake detection

Research at the SIP Lab is funded by various agencies from the UK, the European Union, and North America:

  • European Commission - Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions:
    • Career Integration Grant
    • Research and Innovation Staff Exchange (RISE)
  • Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), UK
  • Newton Fund International Collaboration Programme - Mexican Academy of Sciences
  • Warwick Ventures, UK
  • Ministry of Defence - Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA), UK
  • Ford Motor Company, USA
  • Research England through UUKi
