Building a Critical Mass on Biometrics & Biomedial Pattern Analysis

NOTE: I am currently looking for a post-doc researcher:

My current interest is to advance machine learning technqiues with application to biometrics (e.g., face, fingerprint, iris, speech, and other modalities) and healthcare informatics (processing electronic health records) as discussed in the Research Topics page.

If you wish to work with me, consider also the following options, depending on your career stage:

MSc programme

The following applies to MSc students taking Computer Science courses offered by the Department of Computing, University of Surrey. If you are in this category and are looking for an MSc project, I can offer a few projects. Read on here.

If you are not an existing MSc student at U. of Surrey but consider taking one, check out the postgraduate programme in Computing.

PhD programme

For PhD programme, potential candidates are encouraged to apply to appropriate scholarships in their home countries. For research in healthcare informatics, check out NIHR Doctoral Research Fellowship. Before you apply, you must be able show that you have excellent research and academic track record. Check also the desparate guide for international fundings.

For overseas students, please be aware of the following:
  1. You are likely to pay Overseas tuition fee. Some fellowships such as NIHR Doctoral Research Fellowship mentioned above, pay only the Home/EU tuition fee portion. This means that you have to find a way to cover the fee difference. Full-funding for overseas students is rare unless they are truly outstanding. 
  2. You have to satisfy minimum English requirements by taking English exam.
Applications should come through the online application system. Check out postgraduate research in Computer Science.

Post-doctoral stay

For Post-docs, there are several prestigious fellowships that open annually. The following fellowship shemes are applicable for both research in biometrics and healthcare informatics: Newton International Fellowship, Leverhulme Research Fellowship, Marie Curie Fellowship, EPSRC Postdoctoral Fellowship, and Royal Academy of Engineering Research Fellowship. For research in healthcare informatics, consider NIHR Fellowship and Wellcome Trust Fellowship.

Sabbatical programme or short-term visit

If you want to gain some experience with your sabbatical leave, and would like to work on biometrics or healthcare informatics, please get in touch with me.
