Professor of Electronic & Computer Engineering, Brunel University London
Asoke Nandi received the degree of PhD in Physics from the University of Cambridge (Trinity College). He held academic positions in several universities, including Oxford, Imperial College London, Strathclyde, and Liverpool, as well as Finland Distinguished Professorship. In 2013, he moved to Brunel University London to become the Chair and Head of Electronic and Computer Engineering.
Professor Nandi is a Visiting Professor at Tongji University (China) and an Adjunct Professor at University of Calgary (Canada).
In 1983, Professor Nandi co-discovered the three fundamental particles known as W+, W- and Z0 , providing the evidence for the unification of the electromagnetic and weak forces, for which the Nobel Committee for Physics in 1984 awarded the prize to his two team leaders for their decisive contributions. His current research interests lie in the areas of signal processing and machine learning, with applications to machine condition monitoring, communications, gene expression data, functional magnetic resonance data, and biomedical data. He has made many fundamental theoretical and algorithmic contributions to many aspects of signal processing and machine learning. He has much expertise in “Big Data”, dealing with heterogeneous data, and extracting information from multiple datasets obtained in different laboratories and different times.
Professor Nandi has authored 570 technical publications, including 230 journal papers as well as four books, entitled Automatic Modulation Classification: Principles, Algorithms and Applications (Wiley, 2015), Integrative Cluster Analysis in Bioinformatics (Wiley, 2015), Blind Estimation Using Higher-Order Statistics (Springer, 1999), and Automatic Modulation Recognition of Communications Signals (Springer, 1996). The h-index of his publications is 70 (Google Scholar) and ERDOS number is 2.
Professor Nandi is a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering (UK) and of 7 other institutions. Amongst the many awards he received are:
- Institute of Electrical & Electronics Engineers (USA) Heinrich Hertz Award (2012)
- Glory of Bengal Award for his outstanding achievements in scientific research (2010)
- Water Arbitration Prize of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (UK), (1999)
- Mountbatten Premium of the Institution of Electrical Engineers (UK) (1998).
Professor Nandi is an IEEE Distinguished Lecturer (2018-2019).
