Dr. Beena Ahmed is a Senior Lecturer in Signal Processing with the School of Electrical Engineering and Telecommunications. She received her B.Sc. Engineering in Electrical Engineering from the University of Engineering and Technology, Lahore, Pakistan in 1993 and her Ph.D. from UNSW in 2004. She joined UNSW in 2017. Prior to that she was an Assistant Professor at Texas A&M University at Qatar.

Dr. Ahmed has been awarded international research grants for projects on long-term insomnia monitoring and remote speech therapy. She also received funding to use wearable physiological sensors to identify physiological correlates of mental stress and then adopt these correlates to develop biofeedback mobile games to teach users relaxation skills. Her current research interests are on applying machine learning and remote monitoring in healthcare and therapeutic applications. Specifically she is looking into algorithms to

  • track cognitive ability in the elderly using paralinguistic features
  • recognize speech production errors in patients undergoing speech therapy and second language speakers
  • adapt automatic speech recognition for use by people with speech impairments 
  • identify the risk of adverse events in patients with diabetes and cardiovascular disorders to facilitate just-in-time intervention
  • detect malignant oral cancer tumors in fluorescence endoscopic images
  • track mental stress levels in the long term to better facilitate biofeedback treatment options
  • detect sleep disorders using minimally invasive sensors
