About the Author

Asoke K. Nandi, Department of Electronic & Computer Engineering, Brunel University London, UK
Prof. Nandi is Chair and Head of the Electronic and Computer Engineering Department at Brunel University London, UK. He leads the Signal Processing and Communications Research Group with interests in the areas of signal processing, machine learning, and communications research. He is a Finland Distinguished Professor at the University of Jyvaskyla, Finland. In 1983 Professor Nandi was a member of the UA1 team at CERN that discovered the three fundamental particles known as W+, W- and Z0, providing the evidence for the unification of the electromagnetic and weak forces, which was recognized by the Nobel Committee for Physics in 1984. He has authored or co-authored more than 190 journal papers, and 2 books. The Google Scholar h-index of his publications is 54. In 2010 he received the Glory of Bengal Award for his outstanding achievements in scientific research, and in 2012 was awarded the IEEE Heinrich Hertz Award. Prof. Nandi is a Fellow of the IEEE.Rui Fa, Department of Electronic & Computer Engineering, Brunel University London, UK
Dr. Fa is a Senior Reseach Fellow in the Department of Electronic & Computer Engineering at Brunel University London, UK. Prior to this, he held research positions at the University of York and the University of Leeds working in radar signal processing and wireless communication projects. His current research interests include bioinformatics, machine learning, Bayesian statistics, statistical signal processing, and network science. Dr Rui Fa received his Bachelor and Master degrees in electronic and electrical engineering from Nanjing University of Science and Technology, China, in 2000 and in 2003, respectively, and his PhD degree in electrical engineering from University of Newcastle, UK, in 2007.Basel Abu-Jamous, Department of Electronic & Computer Engineering, Brunel University London, UK
