    Personal profile

    Research Interests

    Dr. Syed Aziz Shah was appointed as an Associate Professor in the Research Centre for Intelligent Healthcare (CIH) at Coventry University (CU) in 2020. He is an interdisciplinary researcher focusing on advanced radio frequency (RF) sensor design and signal processing using RF and THz sensing, specifically for healthcare applications. He is highly motivated to utilize and develop advanced technologies that address the unmet healthcare challenges of unobtrusive monitoring of older adult daily activities for health and wellbeing purposes.

    He is recipient of UK's prestigious Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) New Investigator Award. Dr. Aziz also received the endorsement of UK exceptional talent candidate (‘Emerging Leader’) in year 2018, for the pioneering work in the field of wireless sensing for remote patient monitoring. These prestigious awards are given to early-career, world-leading innovators and scientists from the Royal Academy of Engineering.

    He has grant portfolio of ~£0.9M; won 6 fully-funded projects as Principle Investigator / Principle Supervisor from national and international funding bodies. Notable research projects include:

    1. ‘Radar Sensing for Human Activity Monitoring of Daily Living Simultaneously in Multiple Subjects’ (EPSRC New Investigator Award (EP/W037076/1), ~£410,000 fEC).
    2. ‘Developing Advanced Signal Processing Techniques to Examine the Impact of Falls on Vital Signs’ (A*Star Singapore – CU Joint Funding; Cotetulle, ~£100,000).
    3. ‘Understanding Mechanical Vibrations of Vocal Folds Through Advanced Radar Sensing’ (CU – Deakin University Australia ;Cotetulle) Joint Funding Scheme, ~£100,000.
    4. Non-Invasive Sensor fusion for Detecting and Monitoring COVID-19 Disease Symptoms', (Coventry University’s Doctoral College Funding Scheme), ~£100,000. 
    5. 'Conversational Question-Answering System for Healthcare (Medical) Information Retrieval' Coventry University (UK) – Deakin University (Australia) Joint Funding Scheme (Cotutelle), ~£100,000. 

    Dr. Aziz has published 100 scientific articles (75 in top-tier peer-reviewed multidisciplinary journals including IEEE TAP, IEEE AWPL and IEEE JBHI), given 4 presentations at leading international peer-reviewed conferences (including RADAR Conference France, UCET Conference UK and AECT Conference KSA). He has also served as technical chairperson for leading conferences including UCET, and SIA, and received distinguished guest talk invitations from Glasgow Caledonian University (UK), National University of Science and Technology (Pakistan), North West Polytechnical University (China) and Palestine Technical University (Palestine).
