Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am a Reader at the University of Strathclyde working in the area of signal, image, video and hyperspectral data processing. I work on a number of research and industrial projects where I apply my expertise to address a wide range of challenges in many application areas. My activities range from analysing microscopic biological images to processing images captured during visual inspection of nuclear power plants.

My research interests can be summarised as: signal and image processing, hyperspectral imaging, video processing, artificial intelligence, machine learning, deep learning, image stitching, object detection and tracking and mathematical morphology.

In general, I am interested in extending and creating new image processing techniques to address real-world and industrially relevant challenges. For example, the outcomes of my research conducted during my PhD have been used in various research labs in the UK and in the USA. More recently, I have delivered the outcomes of my research in the form of novel software tools for a range of industrial end-users. I am currently the Strathclyde PI working in collaboration with the project PI at Lancaster on EP/V051059/1. This is an EPSRC funded project researching Autonomous Inspection for Responsive and Sustainable Nuclear Fuel Manufacture (AIRS-NFM). I also have a significant portfolio of industrially funded research.
