I am a Lecturer in the School of Computer Science at the University of Birmingham. Prior to taking up this appointment, I was an RCUK Academic Fellow from 2007-2011 and a research fellow with Ela Claridge on the EPSRC project "Physics-based image interpretation to aid the detection of early signs of retinopathies". I was awarded my PhD in Theoretical Physics in 2003, from the Theoretical Physics group in Birmingham, where I was supervised by Martin Long.
Research more details
My main research interests are in the general area of biomedical imaging, in particular optical techniques for targetted molecular imaging, mass spectrometry imaging, and signal processing techniques for image reconstruction. Much of my work involves computational modelling of the imaging process to maximise the amount of information that an image yields. More details of this work can be found on my Research page.
If you think you would like to study for a PhD with me, then please read my research page carefully so that you have some idea of what I'm interested in before contacting me. If you are a UK student (or an EU student who has been in the UK for at least three years) then I recommend you consider applying to the EPSRC-funded Doctoral Training Centre in the "Physical Sciences of Imaging in the Biomedical Sciences" - PSIBS. If you're a scientist or engineer who wants to do a PhD at the life sciences interface with a focus on developing next-generation imaging techniques, then PSIBS could be for you - scholarships for four years of study are available.
Teaching more details
In the 2012-13 academic year I will be teaching the following modules:
- Computer Systems and Architecture
- Imaging and Image Analysis
- Computational Tools for Modelling and Data Analysis
I am available to supervise student projects in 2012-13. Please
