My research interest is to develop solutions based on signal processing, information theory, and machine learning for problems involving audio and video signals. Examples of topics that I have worked on recently are (in random order): distributed processing, blind source separation, spatial audio, entropy estimation,robust source coding for packet networks, single and multi-channel speech enhancement, video enhancement, camera control for multiview video, auditory modeling, audio and video coding, model estimation, and algorithms that predict perceived signal quality .
are available in audio and video processing.
Bastiaan joined Victoria in 2010. He is also a Professor (part-time) at Delft University of Technology in the Multimedia Signal Processing Group
. Until his Ph.D. students are finished he also remains a Professor at KTH - the Royal Institute of Technology - in Stockholm, where he was Head of the Sound and Image Processing Laboratory
before moving to New Zealand. He was a founder of Global IP Solutions, a company that developed audio and video processing technologies for communication over the Internet for companies such as Skype, IBM, Cisco, and Google; it was acquired by Google in 2010. Before going to Sweden, Bastiaan worked in the Research Division of Bell Laboratories in Murray Hill, New Jersey, mostly in the area of speech processing. He holds a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Delft University of Technology, a Ph.D. in Soil Science from the University of California (UCR), an MS in Physics (UCR) and an MS in Electrical Engineering from Stanford. He is an IEEE Fellow.
