Moeness is the Director of the Center for Advanced Communications at Villanova University, Pennsylvania, USA. His research spans the area of signal analysis and processing with applications to wireless communications, radar, sonar, satellite navigations, healthcare, and ultrasound. His current research focus is radar signal processing, including urban radar, Over-the-Horizon radar, automotive radar, passive radar, ground penetrating radar, and radar for indoor monitoring. Dr. Amin is the recipient of the German 2016 Humboldt Prize and the British 2016 IET Achievement Medal. He also received Technical Achievement Awards from the IEEE Signal Processing Society and the European Association for Signal Processing.
During his five-month visit to DST Group, Australia, Prof. Amin will work on the problem of co-existence between radar and communications systems where both services operate concurrently within the same frequency bandwidth. In collaboration with his host, he will develop algorithms enabling dual system functionality using the same platform.
