Personal statement

I am a Professor in the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering where I am also Deputy Head of Department and Director of the Hyperspectral Imaging (HSI) Centre. The Centre carries out pure and applied research into all aspects of HSI and currently has 11 staff and researchers.

I am also the University's academic lead for the Verically Integrated Project (VIP) Program which brings together students, researchers and staff from across disciplines and academic years to tackle challenging problems.
