Research interests

I am an EPSRC Innovation Fellow and principal investigator for a project concerning automatic disease detection and monitoring in calves. The project uses artificial intelligence techniques, coupled with visible-range and thermal cameras, to identify Bovine respiratory disease (BRD), the most common and costly disease affecting cattle in the world, at the earliest possible stage. I was previously a Senior Research Associate looking after the "Camouflage Machine" project, which combined machine learning, visual psychophysics and computer graphics to either optimise camouflage or maximise visibility for a range environments. As well as visual perception, my research interests lie in the areas of representation of uncertainty and behavioural decision making. I have also carried out work in the areas of locomotion, experimental aesthetics, colour and eye movements.
