About Me


I am currently employed in the Centre for Imaging Sciences at the University of Manchester. Prior to this I studied for my Ph.D. at the Mullard Space Science Laboratory, a department of University College London, where I worked on the development of adiabatic demagnetisation refrigerators for use on astronomical satellites. I also hold an M.A. in Natural Sciences (Physics and Theoretical Physics) from University of Cambridge and an M.Sc. in Astrophysics from Queen Mary University of London.



My current research projects are focused on the automatic identification of vertebral fractures in clinical images. For more details, see my research page, or the pages for the STOpFrac: Software Tool for Opportunistic diagnosis of vertebral Fractures and HICF: An Automated Tool to Identify Vertebral Fractures in Various Imaging Modalities projects. Details of my previous projects can also be accessed via the research page.

Publications and Reports


My published papers can be accessed through the publications page here, or through:

A large collection of my unpublished technical reports can be obtained from the TINA Memo System. These cover a variety of subjects in statistics, medical image analysis, machine vision, and the open-source TINA machine vision software itself. In particular, Products and Convolutions of Gaussian Distributions has proved extremely popular, with over 50 Google Scholar citations to date.
