Personal profile


Dr Xu is currently working as an Assistant Professor at Centre for Intelligent Healthcare, in the theme of Health Technology & Innovation. Her research has spanned a wide range of areas within Biomedical Engineering and Electronic Engineering, especially developing advanced signal processing approaches for healthcare applications. She is currently working on the research topics of Preterm Birth Prediction and Pregnancy Monitoring.

Dr Xu was awarded a PhD in Electronic Engineering from King's College London (KCL) in 2018. Her PhD thesis "Advanced Signal Processing Methods for Analysis of Cortico-Muscular Coherence" focuses on analysing electrophysiological signals (EEG and EMG) and developing novel algorithms to aid the classification and stratification of patients with movement disorders. Before working at Coventry University, she worked as a Post-doctoral researcher at the Department of Basic & Clinical Neuroscience and Department of Informatics at KCL on a project to apply the techniques of signal processing, statistics and information theory to predict the epileptic seizures.

In addition to implementing mathematical theories into clinical neuroscience, her previous research has also focused on software development for healthcare applications and communication systems (e.g. Intermediate-Frequency Receiver for Missile Control, Deepwater Communication system).
