Brett Ninness began life in Singleton, Australia and received his BE, ME and Ph.D degrees in Electrical Engineering from the University of Newcastle, Australia, where he is currently appointed as Professor and has worked in Assistant Dean, Deputy Head of Faculty and Pro Vice Chancellor (Acting) roles.
My research is concerned with the processing of noise corrupted signals. Within this theme, my home area is the science of System Identification which addresses the following problem. Given particular observations of the behaviour of a system, develop a mathematical model for it which can be used (for example) to control it via feedback, predict its performance under different operating regimes, compensate for limitations in its performance, or diagnose faults and changes in it. Recently, I have begun new research directions in the area of signal processing for wireless communications, largely via interaction with industry partners Bell Labs, Agere Systems and LSI Logic.

My teaching experience over the last twenty years has covered a wide range of the electrical engineering and engineering mathematics curriculum. This includes the areas of systems and signal theory, signal processing, digital systems, embedded systems, circuit theory, communications and linear electronics.
