Simon Godsill is Professor of Statistical Signal Processing in the Engineering Department at Cambridge University. He is also a Professorial Fellow and tutor at Corpus Christi College Cambridge.
In 1988, Simon was employed to develop the first commercial CEDAR restoration system and following his return to Cambridge University became a non-executive director of CEDAR Audio Ltd. Together with co-founders Dave Betts and Dr Christopher Hicks, he is an active member of CEDAR’s research committee and has been closely involved with the research that led to the nD algorithms and the establishment of AudioTelligence.
Simon coordinates an active research group in Signal Inference and its Applications within the Signal Processing and Communications Laboratory at Cambridge, specialising in Bayesian computational methodology, multiple object tracking, audio and music processing, and financial time series modelling. He has published extensively in journals, books and international conference proceedings, and together with Prof. Peter Rayner co-authored the seminal textbook Digital Audio Restoration in 1998.
Simon has been the Principal Investigator on many grants funded by the EU, EPSRC, QinetiQ, General Dynamics, the MOD, Microsoft UK, Citibank and Mastercard.
