Professor Jonathon Chambers FREng CEng FIEEE FIET DSc is a Professor of Signal and Information Processing and Head of the Communications, Sensors, Signal and Information Processing Group within the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Newcastle University and also a Visiting Professor within the School of Electronic, Electrical and Systems Engineering at Loughborough University. He has also held senior academic positions at Cardiff University, Imperial College, and King's College London. He is an expert in adaptive and blind signal processing and their applications in biomedicine, communications and defence. He has been working in these fields for more than 25 years and has co-authored two research monographs, one in nonlinear adaptive signal processing and a second in EEG signal processing, both of which appeared with the academic publisher Wiley, in 2001 and 2007 respectively, he has also published more than 450 journal and conference works and graduated more than 60 PhD researchers.
Jonathon has served as an Associate Editor for IEEE journals, including IEEE Trans. Signal Processing, for more than ten years and as an elected member of the IEEE Technical Committee on Signal Processing Theory and Methods and the IEEE Signal Processing Society Awards Board. He was the Technical Programme Chair for the IEEE Workshop on Statistical Signal Processing, Cardiff, held for the first time in the U.K. in 2009. He was also the Co-Technical Programme Chair for the IEEE flagship conference in Signal Processing, ICASSP, held in Prague, 2011. In 2011 he started his third term as Associate Editor for IEEE Trans. Signal Processing, and he is also a Senior Area Editor in Adaptive and Blind Signal Processing. Jonathon was awarded the first QinetiQ Visiting Fellowship in 2007 "for his outstanding contributions to adaptive signal processing and his contributions to QinetiQ" as a result of his successful collaboration with the signal processing team at Malvern.
