My teaching responsibilities include the 2nd year module "C++ and Object Oriented Design" and the third year Robotics module. I also supervise several undergraduate and MSc projects each year, please get in touch if you are interested in projects relating to deep learning, robotics or the wider field of computer vision.

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).
