Personal profile


I recieved a PhD in Intelligent Robotics from King's College, University of London. I am a Chair in Human Machine Systems at the University of Portsmouth, the Director for Biomedical Robotics and Intelligent Systems since 2005. I previously worked in industry on large-scale industrial control and system integration projects, and held appointments at the University of London and University of Aberdeen.

Research Interests

My research focuses on motion sensing and understanding and its applications to human machine systems, particularly those approaches which could make contributions to the intelligent connection of perception to action with applications in exploring solutions to children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and stroke patients. I appreciate financial support from the Royal Society, the Royal Academy of Engineering, EPSRC, EU 7th Framework Programme, SEEDA, Japan Society for the Promotion of Science and the British Council, as well as national and international industrial and academic partners.
