Dr. Mandar Gogate

Senior Research Fellow


Dr Mandar Gogate is an EPSRC Senior Research Fellow at Edinburgh Napier University’s ​School of Computing, Engineering & built Environment specialising in real-time multimodal speech enhancement, signal processing, machine learning and artificial intelligence. Mandar graduated with a B.Eng (highest 1st Class Honours with distinction) in Electrical and Electronic Engineering at India’s top Birla Institute of Technology & Science, Pilani. He was awarded a PhD degree in Computing Science by Edinburgh Napier University in 2020.

Previously, he worked as an invited Research Scientist at Amazon and ENSTA ParisTech - École Nationale Supérieure de Techniques Avancées, Paris, France where he researched multimodal robotic sensor fusion technologies, incremental learning and dynamic advertising. He has also been an invited visiting research fellow at Sonova AG (Switzerland), Academia Sinica (Taiwan), MIT (Synthetic Intelligence Lab), and University of Oxford (Computational Neuroscience Lab).

His research interests are interdisciplinary, and include: real-time audio-visual enhancement, multimodal sensor fusion, incremental learning, natural language processing, computer vision, sentiment and emotion analysis, privacy-preserving machine learning, explainable artificial intelligence, IoT, wireless sensing and 5G communications. Real-world applications range from cognitive robotics and assistive healthcare technologies to ​​automated social media analytics for security, business intelligence and industry 4.0.
