I'm a Senior Lecturer in Computer Vision (US = Assoc. Prof.) at Surrey's Centre for Vision Speech and Signal Processing (CVSSP). I'm a member of the British Computer Society, IEEE, and a Chartered Engineer (CEng). (Extended Bio)
My research fuses Computer Vision and Graphics technologies to tackle Big Data problems in visual media, in particular new ways to search and present large visual media collections. These include sketch based search of photos and video, artistic stylization of home media collections, visual search of dance using photos and sketched choreographic queries. My group is actively developing technologies for film and broadcast production, including automatic metadata annotation (object recognition), 3D character animation, and 2D Non-photorealistic rendering (NPR).
I teach Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (EEE3032) to final year undergraduate (BEng and MEng) students, and supervise final year dissertations in areas aligned to my research interests.
I'm programme coordinator for all Year 1 and 2 Electronic Engineering undergraduate degree pathways at Surrey.
