Yan Pailhas graduated in 2002 in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from Telecom Paris, France, then acquired his MSc in Image and Signal Processing from ENS Cachan, Paris, France, and again in 2012 with a PhD in Underwater Acoustics from Heriot-Watt University. He is now a research fellow at the Ocean Systems Laboratory in the School of Engineering and Physical Sciences, Heriot-Watt University, where he is currently carrying out research activities in bioacoustic signals and sensors, signal processing for detection and classification, and numerical simulations. His researches focus on the understanding of the interaction between wideband ultrasonic wave and solid objects. He is currently working on the development of novel signalling systems, detailed analysis and simulation of target echoes for classification and identification from sonar returns.
