I am a computer vision DPhil/PhD student in the Visual Geometry Group at the University of Oxford, supervised by Professor Andrew Zisserman and Dr. Timor Kadir.
I am particularly interested in the application of machine learning to real-world problems in healthcare. Recently I have been focused on building automated methods to detect and analyse spinal disease in medical scans with a particular focus on cancer as well as data-efficient learning via self-supervision. I'm proud to be funded by Cancer Research UK and am a member of AIMS CDT. My CV is available here.
Applying for a PhD? If you're thinking of applying for a PhD, and you have questions regarding Oxford/AIMS/VGG/Computer Vision research in general, please don't hesitate to get in contact even if you feel like your background isn't suitable (I definitely felt that way when I applied). I'll try to respond as soon as possible although it may take a day or two.
