I currently hold an Imperial College Research Fellowship and serve as the principal investigator for my project on Machine Learning for Light Field Capture and Rendering. Prior to this I was a postdoctoral research fellow at the Dyson Robotics Lab. I did my PhD at the University of Oxford where I held an EPSRC scholarship. I got my MSc in Electrical Engineering from the University of the Witwatersrand in South Africa.
Our world is inherently 3D, yet most of computer vision has (and is still) focussed on simple 2D tasks. I believe that any intelligent system that can robustly understand, interact and analyse the real world, will need to build and maintain native 3D representations that change and update over time. My research is currently focussed on building the necessary algorithmic frameworks to enable computers to understand geometry, light and motion. To achieve this, I am interested in three main aspects:
My research has been applied in a number of application domains - from home robots, to mobile apps. Below are some examples of the capabilities that my reserach has enabled.
