I am currently a research associate in the Computer Vision Laboratory at the University of Nottingham, working with plant phenotyping. I am also coming to the end of my PhD, which is under the supervision of Dr. Georgios Tzimiropoulos.

Most of my free 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. You can read my rants, tips, and other hard to categorise things on my blog.


My PhD work focuses on deep learning applied to the human face. This includes 3D reconstruction, face alignment and semantic part segmentation. Full List →

going to your website reminds me that you're a super cool computer science guy rather than some hardware nerd
