Privacy-preserving machine learning and data aggregation for Internet of Things
The proliferation of Internet of Things (IoT) devices has contributed to the emergence of participatory sensing (PS) and collaborative learning (CL), where multiple participants collect and report their data to a cloud ...
Graphene quantum dot based electronic devices
Among all graphene derivatives, the graphene quantum dot (GQD), a fragment limited in size, or domains, of a single-layer two-dimensional graphene crystal, has been investigated with much interest by the global research ...
Ultra-low power, low-noise and small size transceiver for wearable and implantable biomedical devices and neural prosthesis
There is high demand for research into the innovation and development of miniaturized electronics devices for biomedical applications such as implantable medical devices (IMD), neural prostheses (NP), embedded neural ...
Persistent communication connectivity of multi-agent systems
In applications where networks of autonomous agents are employed to achieve an objective, such as accurately estimating an environmental variable or surveilling an area of interest, the agents need to communicate among ...
Inkjet printed electrolyte-gated oxide nanoparticle thin-film transistor
Large-area printed electronics offer a new arena in electronics industry due to their low fabrication cost, simplicity, and compatibility with flexible substrates. The organic and printed electronic product sales were more ...
Advanced techniques for high-performance optical transmission and sensing
In this thesis, we explore the advanced techniques for both optical transmission and optical fibre sensing. For the optical transmission, we design a low differential modal delay (DMD) few-mode fibre with distributed long ...
Mitigating human-elephant conflict through an engineering approach
Elephants and humans existed with a long tradition of interdependence up until contemporary times. However, today human-elephant conflict (HEC) has become one of the most significant environmental and socio-economic crises ...
Efficient algorithms for autonomous agents facing uncertainty
This thesis considers the design and mathematical analysis of algorithms enabling autonomous agents to operate reliably in the presence of uncertainty. The algorithms are designed to preserve computational tractability, ...
Stability, robustness and switching performance of vibrational control systems
The thesis focuses on the stability and robustness analysis of a class of vibrational control systems, which take advantages of high-frequency dithers to provide an extra design freedom. By carefully revisiting the vibrational ...
Big data cluster analysis and its applications
The increasing prevalence of Internet of things (IoT) technologies, smartphones, and social media services generates a huge amount of data, popularly known as ’big data’. Extracting useful information from big data is ...
