Andrew Abel received his Ph.D from the University of Stirling in Scotland in 2013, after conducting rsearching into the development of signal and image cognitively inspired algorithms for multimodal speech research. Between 2012 and 2016, he was a researcher at Stirling, working on first MEMS microphone signal processing, and latterly, was a Research Co-Investigator for a large (~0.5 million GBP) EPSRC research grant into audiovisual hearing aids. He was also a visiting researcher, in 2015, based at Anhui University in Hefei, focusing on image processing. He is currently a lecturer at Xi'an Jiaotong Liverpool University, with active interest in image processing, machine learning, speech processing, and other cognitively inspired speech research.
