Description

I am a researcher at Microsoft Research, Cambridge, in the Machine Learning and Perception group. My main research interests are machine learning, machine vision and bioinformatics.

Previously, I was a Ph.D. student in the Inference Group at the Cavendish Laboratory, supervised by Chris Bishop and David MacKay. I have also been a member of the Signal Processing Group at the Engineering Department and the Learning and Vision Group at the MIT AI Lab. My undergraduate degree was in Electrical and Information Sciences at Cambridge University.

I was also a founder of Hypertag, a company which allows you to interact with adverts using your mobile phone.
