I am a PhD student in the University of Birmingham School of Computer Science, supervised by Dr Ata Kaban.

In 2008-9 I was a Teaching Fellow in the school and admissions tutor for our MSc Natural Computation and MSc Intelligent Systems Engineering degrees. I taught modules on Machine Learning, Machine Learning (Extended), Nature Inspired Design (A) and Nature Inspired Design.

I have a broad interest in learning and vision, both the organic and machine varieties. I have a particular interest in computational theories of learning.

My current research is into dimensionality reduction. In particular, random projections of very high dimensional data sets into low dimensional spaces, and the effect of projection on classification performance.
