Dr Michael Pound
Associate Professor in Computer Vision
Mike is a computer scientist whose research focuses on the development of novel computer vision techniques. As part of the Beacon, he is working with bioscientists to apply these computer vision techniques to plant phenotyping, providing accurate measurement of 2D and 3D shape information of plants. The bioscientists can use this information to explain the underlying mechanisms for how plants grow.
Mike has developed tools that allow biologists to measure plant root systems. These have been adopted by researchers all over the world. Mike has been promoted to Associate Professor in the School of Computer Science, having started at the Beacon as a Nottingham Research Fellow.
