Qualifications


Emmanuel Ifeachor is a professor of intelligent electronics systems at Plymouth University, UK.   He studied communication engineering at Plymouth University and at Imperial College, London, where he developed a keen interest in signal processing.  He went on to study for a PhD in medical electronics at Plymouth where he worked as a research assistant, specialising in biomedical signal processing. He took up lectureship in electronics at Plymouth in 1985 and became a professor in 1996.

 

Research Interests and ExpertiseHis primary research interests and expertise are in intelligent signal processing/data analysis and computational intelligence techniques and their applications to real-world problems in healthcare, real-time multimedia communication and audio.  He has published extensively in these areas, including co-authoring over 200 research papers and 15 books/book chapters, including a major text book, Digital Signal Processing – A Practical Approach, Guide to Voice and Video over IP: For Fixed and Mobile Networks, and Artificial Neural Networks for Biomedicine

 

Professor Ifeachor is co-editor in chief of the Source Code for Biology and Medicine. He was the project co-ordinator for BIOPATTERN,a €6.4 million, 30-partner, EU FP6 network of excellence, project (2004-2008);a theme leader in a £2m, NHS  NIHR-fundedproject in clinical trials methodology for neurodegenerative diseases, and the principal investigator in a recent EPSRC-funded project on novel point-of-care, diagnostic technologies for dementia. He is a co-investigator in two EU MarieCurie projects on quality of experience for multimedia communication, QoE-NET(2015-2019), and bio-sensing and diagnostic technologies for Alzheimer’s disease, BBDIAG (2017-2020). 

 

Awards and Other Highlights: Professor Ifeachor has received several external awards for his work, including two awards from the IET in 1997 and in 1998. His chair was sponsored by a telecom company, WWG/Acterna.  Professor Ifeachor has also served as Head ofSchool at Plymouth and Chair of the IET Professional Network on HealthcareTechnologies.  He created two international conference series, NNESMED/CIMED (Neural Networks and Expert Systems in Medicine and Healthcare/Computational Intelligence in Medicine and Healthcare)and MEDSIP (Medical Signal & Information Processing), which ran for over 10years.

 

Professor Ifeachor, a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, has taught and examined at undergraduate and postgraduate levels for over 30 years. He has served as an external examiner for an MSc course and for 13 PhD projects. He has successfully supervised over 20 PhD projects to completion.
