Projects per year
I am a Lecturer at the University of Strathclyde working in the area of image processing. I work on a number of research an industrial projects where I apply my image processing skills 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, machine learning, image stitching, object detection and tracking, mathematical morphology and the hit-or-miss-transform.
In general, I am interesting in extending and creating new image processing techniques to adress real world and industrially relevant challenges. For example, the outcomes of my research conducted during my PhD have been used in various biological research labs in the UK and in the USA. More recently, upon completing an intensive two year research project, I delivered the oucomes of my research in the form of novel image stitching software to a leading energy company.
Expertise & Capabilities
- Image Processing
- Signal Processing
- Hyperspecral Imaging

I am teaching Digital Electronics and I also teach image processing as part a Vertically Integrated Project (VIP). VIP is a new initiative in teaching recently adopted at Strathclyde which allows teams of undergraduates to work on state-of-the-art research projects throughout their university career. I have also taught Masters level courses in Image and Video processing as well as looking after a Small Group Tutorial which provides additional academic and general support to first year students to help them adapt to university life.
