Full Profile

Wasiq Khan is working as Research Associate (Intelligent Systems in Aerospace) in the School of Engineering, University of Central Lancashire since October 2014. At UCLAN, Wasiq is working on a number of research projects related to Aerospace technology, Applied Image Processing, Intelligent Resource Allocation, and Decision Support Systems.

His research interests include autonomous and intelligent systems, speech processing, and image processing. Previously, Wasiq worked at Reading University where he developed a novel approach for Pathological Human Gait anomaly detection and Decision Support System. Wasiq also have worked as Assistant Lecturer at Bradford University while teaching a number of modules to under-graduate and post-graduate students.

Wasiq completed a PhD by research at Bradford University in 2015 which developed new methods for time warped speech signal matching using dynamic state modelling and Kalman filter.
