Dr. Marina Gashinova is a Lecturer in Communications Engineering in the Electrical, Electronic and Computer Engineering School (EECE) of University of Birmingham (UoB) since October 2011. She is a member of internationally recognized Microwave Integrated System Laboratory headed by Prof. Cherniakov.
Marina’s principal research interests are in radar technologies, including automotive radar, bi-static radar, passive radar, THz sensing, imaging radar, automotive applications, signal processing, fundamental electromagnetic (EM) theory, computational EM, with current focus on radar imaging techniques and image processing, as well as advanced signal processing approaches to tackle new challenging problems in radar, communications and interdisciplinary applications.
Dr. Marina Gashinova is a Principal Investigator (PI) and Co-Investigator (CoI) on a number of research projects funded by EPSRC and industry (see Section “Research”). Two examples of current research, which she leads as a PI, re: “Radio-Holographic Object Imaging Technology Based on Forward Scattering Phenomena for Security Sensor Networks” (EPSRC) and “THz Terrain Identification and imaging” which is part of “TERASEN” strategic partnership with JLR since 2012. Within her current projects Dr. Marina Gashinova conducts the research to develop application-specific advanced radar automatic detection and classification algorithms and imaging techniques, which require expertise in both physics of electromagnetism and in modern radar technologies, conceptual image presentation and image interpretation.
Dr. Marina Gashinova has built strong research ties with long-standing university and research institution groups (Italy , France, Germany) and industrial partners (SELEX, Thales, JLR, VivaTech, DSTL ). She is She is a UK representative of NATO SET 196 on multistatic/multichannel radar imaging, a TPC member of prestigious international conferences: International Radar Symposium 2010-2015, IET Radar Conference 2012. She is organizer of special sessions and workshops at international radar conferences, presenter of invited and regular talks. She is author/co-author of more than 60 publications in highly rated journals and conference proceedings.
