Computer Vision and Graphics

Welcome to my website. I work in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Bath as a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Computer Vision, Graphics and Machine Learning. I also hold an Honorary Lecturer position in the Virtual Environments and Computer Graphics Group in the Department of Computer Science at University College London where I was formerly a Research Associate working with Jan Kautz and Simon Prince on synthesizing and editing photorealistic visual objects funded by the EPSRC.

My main area of research involves learning models of shape (2D and 3D) and appearance from images. In particular, I am interested in performing this in an automatic or interactive fashion that allows these technologies to be put to use in a variety of applications without requiring users to have computer vision or graphics expertise. Further details may be found here as well as in my publications.

Previously I was a Research Associate in the Computer Vision Group of the Machine Intelligence Laboratory, in the Department of Engineering at the University of Cambridge working on the EU Hydrosys Project led by Ed Rosten. I completed my PhD, in the Computer Vision Group at the University of Cambridge, under the supervision of Roberto Cipolla and the guidance of George Vogiatzis and Carlos Hernández. I was funded by a Schiff Foundation Scholarship and Toshiba Research.
