Mike Brookes is a Senior Research Investigator in the Communications
and Signal Processing Group of the Electrical
& Electronic Engineering Department.
My research concentrates on the application of signal processing algorithms
to speech and image processing and to software radio systems. I combine
expertise in signal processing and digital system design and am interested both
in the development of new algorithms and in their real-time hardware
implementation. Recent projects include:
- CLEAR: Centre for Law Enforcement
Audio Research aim to enhance the listenability and intelligibility of
- Model-based speech enhancement:
This project uses a statistical characterisation of speech features to
constrain the output of a speech enhancer in order to suppress the
generation of non-speech artifacts.
- Low bit rate speech coding: This
project replaces the conventional stochastic codebook in a CELP speech
coder with a flat-spectrum phase codebook to improve the output speech
- A speech toolbox of MATLAB routines is available on GPL terms.
- An online Matrix Reference Manual gives
reference information on many aspects of matrices and linear algebra.
- Information about probability distributions.
- BibTex4Word. This is a bibliographic add-in for Microsoft Word that allows
the citation in a Word document of references from a BibTex database and the
insertion into the The Speech
Processing home page describes the research activities of the section
and contains links to other research groups on the web.
- document of a bibliography using almost any BibTex style.
- Perl Scripts (crudely written but I find them useful)
- xplore.pl converts the search results output
from IEEE Xplore into Bibtex
format (compatible with the excellent
- spie.pl converts downloaded Bibtex files from
the SPIE Digital Library into a form that I find
- gatherbib.pl scans a Bibtex file and
gathers all the corresponding PDF files from a central repository into a local
