Dr Brian Salmon received his PhD degree in electronic engineering from the University of Pretoria, South Africa in 2012. He is currently pursuing a research fellowship at the University of Tasmania while also being a senior researcher for the Remote Sensing Research Unit at the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research. Brian was the lead author of the paper that won the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society 2012 Symposium prize paper award. He is an IEEE member and was a guest Editor for the IEEE Journal of Selected Topics of Remote Sensing.

Biography

Before joining the University of Tasmania, Brian was a senior researcher at the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research where he initiated and led new projects in maritime domain awareness. These projects included collaboration from institutions such as the Office of Naval Research Global (ONRG - USA), Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR - USA), Defence Peace Safety and Security (DPSS - South Africa). These projects were part of an International Collaborative Development for Enhanced Maritime Domain Awareness program that was funded by the Office of the Under Secretary of Defence for Acquisitions, Technology and Logistics for a coalition warfare program.

In addition, he has been part of the Remote Sensing Research Unit for the past 7 years and researched and developed numerous remote sensing prototypes that were later delivered as products to various industries, government departments, banking sectors and fire protection.

Research Themes

Brian's research aligns to two of the University's research themes; Environment, Resources and Sustainability and Data, Knowledge and Decisions. His research interests include understanding how artificial intelligence can be used to extract useful information from various satellite imagery acquired on a daily basis. This aids numerous applications which span multiple ocean and land monitoring systems that are used by various industries, government departments, banking sectors, mining and fire protection. His land monitoring research is focussed on developing machine learning methods to operate in spectral, temporal and spatial domain analysis to compute changes in the surrounding environment and classifying objects. His ocean monitoring research is based on fusing terrestrial and satellite transponder messages with synthetic aperture radar satellite imagery. This is used to identify illegal fishing activities and oil spills in the ocean to alert the proper authorities.

Collaboration

Dr Salmon is currently involved in three international projects, which are primarily aimed at extracting relevant information from satellite imagery to fuse with various other auxiliary sources of information. Combined these collaborative projects involve partnership between universities, defence institutions, government departments and industries across North America, Africa and Australia. The established collaborations with international research groups included: Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR) USA, Office of Naval Research Global (ONRG) USA, and CSIRO South Africa.

Prediction and detection of apnoea in preterm infants (2020 - 2022)$823,982
Description
We propose a 3 year study with the over-arching goal of developing tools to improve the management of apnoea in preterm infants on non-invasive respiratory support. Our hypotheses are that pattern recognition and machine-learning software can be used to predict impending apnoeic events with a high degree of certainty, and that a combination of innovative monitoring devices measuring torso movement and acoustic transmission of airway noises can improve the detection of central and obstructive apnoeic events.BackgroundModern respiratory management for preterm infants involves protracted use of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP). This less-invasive form of respiratory support has advantages over intubation and ventilation, but relies on adequate respiratory drive and airway patency at a time when both of these are prone to failure. Central and obstructive apnoeic events are well-recognized causes of hypoxemic and/or bradycardic episodes in preterm infants, which may have lasting neurodevelopmental consequences. At present central pauses in respiration can be difficult to reliably identify in infants on CPAP, and most obstructive episodes go undetected. Moreover, there is no way of knowing when an infant is about to stop breathing. Research proposal Over a 3 year period we will assemble a unique compendium of physiological recordings in preterm infants <30 weeks gestation on CPAP using multimodal monitoring equipment. In our first aim we will apply sophisticated machine-learning techniques to the physiological data to develop a predictive tool to identify a pre-apnoeic state in real-time. In our second aim we will determine whether a) respiratory pauses can be reliably identified using a unique contactless respiratory monitoring system, and b) whether obstructive apnoea can be detected in preterm infants on CPAP with acoustic sensors.
