Welcome! I am an assistant professor in the ECS department at the University of Southampton working in the vision, learning and control VLC Group . The focus of my research is on machine learning, particularly deep learning, often applied to health-related applications. I am interested in developing machine learning techniques to address novel sensor-driven healthcare problems, this sometimes includes natural language processing and vision related applications. Prior to joining Southampton, I was a research assistant at Idiap Research Institute. I obtained my PhD in Computer Science from Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) in 2011.
