Dr. Siow Yong Low is an Associate Professor and Head of the EEE Programme at the University of Southampton Malaysia. He was a recipient of the Australian funded CIS and the APA scholarships for both his undergraduate and postgraduate studies in Australia.

From 2005 – 2010, he held a variety of post-doctoral and research engineer posts in WA Australia before moving to the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Curtin University, Sarawak campus as a Senior Lecturer. He has taught broadly on the EEE curriculum, in particular teaching electrical systems, signals and systems, microprocessors and software technology. As an electronics and communications engineer, Siow Yong applies his research in signal processing into making assistive listening devices and hearing aids more responsive and seamless for the hearing impaired.

Siow Yong’s research is in the broad area of acoustics signal processing. In simple terms, his research involves the electronic manipulation of acoustic signals. One example is speech enhancement applications such as assistive listening devices and hearing aids, where noisy speech signals can be processed in such a way that the noise signal is reduced and the overall speech intelligibility is increased. Currently, he is looking into the segregation capability of the modulation space in noisy settings and to establish key speech modulation features most relevant to speech intelligibility. In addition to academic teaching and research, he has provided consultancy work for the industry and forensic audio analyses for the Australian police.
