Hi, I'm Daniel. I work in the Department of Computer Science at UCL in the Machine Vision Group under the supervision of Gabriel J. Brostow and Dr. Clare Wilson FRCOphth. My main interests are in scalable approximate Bayesian inference, deep learning, structured representation learning, medical imaging and optimization. I graduated from the Department of Engineering, Cambridge University in 2014 with an MEng and BA and have been at UCL since then.

My PhD is split between two major projects: I am interested in obtaining explict mathematical models of image formation and using these as useful inductive priors in convolutional neural networks e.g., harmonic networks. I am also funded by the charity Fight for Sight to automate the screening and detection of a sight-threatening, neonatal ocular disease Retinopathy of Prematurity. On the side, I am interested in useful applications of scalable Bayesian algorithms in both the vision and medical imaging domains, e.g. see our Bayesian super-resolution paper.

Reading group

I organise the UCL computer vision vision reading group. Attendence is free and open to all. We have a broad covering of topic in vision, very often branching into machine learning and computer graphics. If you have questions, or would like your email added to the mailing list, please get in touch.

Teaching and mentorship

I am a teaching assistant on Machine Vision, COMPGI14/COMPM054. I also recently co-supervised Saki Shinoda for her masters project on semi-supervised methods.

Brief Bio and CV

My Cirriculum Vitae

I grew up in Cambridge, going to school there and later reading Engineering at Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge University. As an undergraduate, I was very involved with my college engineering society and notably captained my college rowing club twice. During my masters I became interested in machine learning and computational neuroscience, choosing to write my thesis on the latter. After Cambridge I moved directly to London to begin a PhD under the supervision of Dr. Gabriel Brostow who is now Reader in Computer Vision and Computer Graphics at UCL
