I am currently working at King's College Centre for Military Health as an Informatican focusing on e-health projects including a data linkage between the NHS and the King's College Military cohort and Internet of Things. In addition, I work on variety of research projects in the areas of computer vision, machine learning (deep-learning with big data), motion analysis, feature extraction and representation, web development and web accessibility. My objective is to focus on research that is capable of being commercialised in a low-cost environment for real-world applications. Notably using Depth Sensor Technology.

I completed my PhD at the Biological and Sensory Computation at Manchester Metropolitan University where I was supervised by Dr Moi Hoon Yap (Director of Studies), Dr Jamie S. McPhee and Dr Nicholas Costen. I received an Information and Communications B.Sc (Hons.) and a Masters in Computing (M.Sc) from Manchester Metropolitan University in 2011 and 2012, respectively. I am also an active member of the IEEE. This site will index my publication, code (and datasets) and source material for teaching.
