Short Biography

I received the B. Sc. (Hons) degree in Computer Science with Artificial Intelligence from the University of Leeds, and the M. Phil. degree in Computer Speech, Text and Internet Technology from the University of Cambridge in 2010. In summer 2010, I joined the Imperial College London as a Research Assistant, and in autumn 2010, I started my EPSRC funded studies for the Ph. D. degree at Imperial in the field of computer vision under the supervision of Prof. Maja Pantic and Dr Stefanos Zafeiriou. After my employment as Postdoctoral Researcher with Prof. Philip Torr at the University of Oxford, I joined the Computer Vision Group at the Cambridge Research Laboratory of Toshiba Research Europe. My general interests are unsupervised incremental pattern analysis and 3D scene reconstruction.
