I am presently working towards my PhD in the Computer Vision Laboratory at the University of Nottingham, under the supervision of Dr. Georgios Tzimiropoulos.

Most of my time is spent listening to music, drinking too much tea, cycling, tinkering with electronics, messing about with my radio (my call sign is M6PIU) and restoring old computers. I particularly like PDP-11s and early UNIX systems.


Since starting my PhD, my research has primarily focused on deep learning applied to the human face. This includes 3D reconstruction, face alignment and semantic part segmentation.

I would prefer it if you send plain text email. Why? Please read this page, which gives a good overview of some of the problems with HTML email.

Please don't send the same email to multiple email accounts. I check all of them.

Here is an email address to try and catch spammers. Please don't send any email to it. The inline style attribute attempts to hide this address.

Verifying these pages

Since I linked to my GPG key above, for each HTML file, I automatically generate a signature which can be verified using GPG to ensure that I created the page. Below is a short example of importing my key (32716A1F) and verifying this page:

gpg --import <(curl http://aaronsplace.co.uk/gpg-personal.pub)
gpg --verify <(curl -s http://aaronsplace.co.uk/index.asc) \
             <(curl -s http://aaronsplace.co.uk/index.html)

You should see "Good signature from Aaron S. Jackson..."

If you know me and can verify this is actually me (probably in person), it would be good if you can sign my key.


Various Links

I also keep a local mirror of a few websites and free software projects. While my uplink is slow (10Mbps or so), it is publicly accessible and may be used if you really want to. It is at http://pub.aaronsplace.co.uk/mirror
