Summary on Grant Application Form
The main aim of this platform grant proposal is to build upon the expertise of the Sheffield team in signal processing and system identification for nonlinear systems to develop core new research themes. The applicants developed the narmax methodology, a theory for nonlinear systems in the frequency domain, and a class of algorithms for the identification and analysis of spatio-temporal systems. Recent developments at Sheffield mean we are now in a unique position to develop new multi-disciplinary research themes to exploit and build upon this expertise. The new multi-disciplinary research directions that we plan to develop as part of this research proposal include materials design, metabolic systems, neuro-imaging, and the modelling of space weather systems. Each of these offers unique challenges in signal processing and system identification and each requires scoping or feasibility studies to establish the potential to develop each new research area into a core research proposal. The core theme of this platform grant proposal is therefore to provide funding to conduct initial scoping research studies into each of these new multi-disciplinary projects with the objective that this will allow the development of each theme to the point where a responsive mode application can be submitted to take the research forward.
