I am a Reader (Associate Prof./US) in Computer Science at the University of Bath (since 2014). I became a Lecturer (Assistant Prof./US) in Computer Science in 2012. I have been fortunate enough to be awarded two previous Research Fellowships: Royal Academy of Engineering, 2007-2012, Royal Society Industry Fellowship (with Double Negative Visual Effects), 2012-present. I am currently the Director of the Centre for the Analysis of Motion, Entertainment Research and Applications (CAMERA), funded by EPSRC/AHRC, with partner contributions from The Imaginarium, The Foundry, British Skeleton, Ministry of Defence and British Maritime Technologies.
I am interested in taking fundamental research ideas - in Computer Vision, Graphics and Psychology - and applying them to real world problems. In practice, this can mean taking an idea from initial research, through to a published paper, and then into industry. Application areas include entertainment, healthcare and sport.
PhD/Post-Doctoral Researcher Opportunities!I am currently looking for a post-doctoral researcher with a background in 3D computer vision, ideally with application areas/interests in real time tracking. There are also PhD opportunities within CAMERA in several areas across motion capture and animation. Experience/interest in Computer Vision, Graphics and/or machine learning is desirable. Please email me for enquiries.
