I am Lecturer in Robot Vision and Autonomous Systems within the Centre for Vision, Speech and Signal Processing (CVSSP) at the University of Surrey Electronic Engineering Department. A copy of my CV is available here (this may be updated infrequently).

I currently supervise 6 PhD students (Jamie Spencer Martin, Stephanie Stoll, N. Cihan Camgoz, Rebecca Allday, Matthew Marter and Oscar Mendez). I also supervised Dr. Karel Lebeda who received his PhD in 2016 and was subsequently awarded the Sullivan Thesis Prize. I also supervise several undergraduate and MSc projects each year, please get in touch if you are interested in projects relating to robotics or the wider field of computer vision.

My teaching responsibilities include the labs and assessment for the first year undergraduate module "Computers & Programming I: The C Language". I also teach the tutorial sessions for the 3rd year Undergraduate module "Object Oriented Design and C++". In 2017 I will also deliver the 3rd year module "Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition".

My PhD thesis was titled "The estimation and use of 3D information, for natural human action recognition" and was completed in May 2013. My PhD supervisor was Prof. Richard Bowden and my secondary supervisor was Dr. John Collomosse. My examiners were Prof. Adrian Hilton and Prof. Andrew Davison.

I received an MEng (distinction) in Electronics and Computer Engineering at the University of Surrey, in October 2009. I was also awarded the DTI MEng prize, for the highest scoring MEng graduate, and the Associateship of the University of Surrey (AUS) for my industrial placement at the Home Office Scientific Development Branch (HOSDB).
