Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am currently a PhD student in the field of image processing with a focus on the design of efficient hyperspectral image analysis algorithms.

I completed my BEng at the University of Strathclyde and during my undergraduate studies I developed an interest and understanding of digital signal processing, in particular in the fields of digital image and video processing and computer vision. I was able to apply my knowledge during multiple relevant research internships within the university which ultimately led me to commence my PhD upon my graduation.
