Research Summary

My interests are image analysis and target tracking, and developing software tools.

Currently research includes developing image analysis software for the quantification of images of growing plants and crops as part of the Centre for Plant Integrative Biology. We use a number of cutting-edge imaging approaches, including hyperspectral and 3D imaging, combined with machine learning approaches, including deep learning.

Selected Publications

I have offices on Sutton Bonington and Jubilee campuses.

On SB, you can find me in Plant Sciences, C08a. My office in Computer Science is B80. You are welcome to try dropping by, but it is best to email me first for an appointment.

I mainly teach Software Maintenance (G52SWM) and Schools Experience (G53SCE) in Computer Science, and Computer Modelling in Science (D224E4 and C135E9) in Biosciences. I do supervise final year projects: if you are interested in image analysis, email me with project ideas.

Past Research

Tracking algorithm development: how to track objects in video sequences.

Future Research

Hyperspectral imaging

Generating 3D models

Phenotyping - automating the characterization of plants using imaging, robotics and automation software to speed up the number of plants we can measure in an experiment.

Segmentation methods, including superpixel approaches.
