Dr Xuewu Dai

Senior Lecturer

Department: Mathematics, Physics and Electrical Engineering

Xuewu -DaiI joined Northumbria University in 2013 after holding two Research Associate positions at University of Oxford (2011-2013) and at University College London (2009-2011), respectively.  For over 10 years, I have worked as an academic researcher and engineer in advanced signal processing and its applications in control systems and wireless communications.

I received an MEng in Communication Engineering and BSc in Computer Science from Southwest University, China, in 1999 and 2003, respectively, and a PhD degree studying dynamic modelling and observer-based condition monitoring in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from the University of Manchester, UK in 2008. Prior to the lecturer position at Northumbria, I worked as a post-doctoral researcher from 2011 to 2013 at the Department of Engineering Science University of Oxford, where I developed the signal processing system for the non-contact optical sensor for wastewater and environment monitoring with industrial partners. Due to my contribution to this project, I was awarded the Early Career Research Prize by SWIG UK. From 2009 to 2011, I was a Research Associate at Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, University College London (UCL), working as part of the TSB/EPSRC project on "Wireless Data Acquisition in Gas Turbine Engine Testing (WIDAGATE)". I joined the School of Electronic and Information Engineering, Southwest University as a Lecturer Assistant in 2002. During 1999-2000, I worked as a volunteer of education aid group under the China Youth Volunteers Poverty Alleviation Project and taught pupils at Qinghai, China.

He has edited 1 book and published 2 book chapters and over 30 papers in refereed journals and conference proceedings.
