Research Community

The CDT is part of the Signal Processing Research Group led by Simon Maskell, Professor of Autonomous Systems.

The CDT PhD students and partners benefit from access to a wider community of experts from the Signal Processing Research Group. Both groups are led by Professor Simon Maskell who, with the help of his academic colleagues has secured a multi million pound research portfolio on topics such as:

  • Big Data and Autonomous Systems
  • Bayesian Statistics
  • Tracking and Data Fusion
  • Quantum Technologies
  • Image Processing
  • Guidance and Navigation

The 50+ member community is made up of creative and friendly individuals with a variety of skills, knowledge and expertise to generate novel, useful research outcomes which make an economic and social difference.

Current grants include EPSRC Big Hypotheses: A fully parallelised bayesian inference solution and various other partnerships, collaborations and consultancy work with industry, government and academia.
