I am a lecturer in the School of Energy and Electronic Engineering, University of Portsmouth, UK.

From January 2009 to August 2013, I worked as a computer engineering lecturer and researcher at Mae Fah Luang University, Thailand in the School of Information Technology.

I worked for two years as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Bristol (2007-2008) on the analysis of video and multidimensional imaging data with Professor Majid Mirmehdi and Dr Xianghua Xie.

In 2002, I commenced my PhD under the supervision of Dr Kevin Wells in the area of medical image analysis applied to MRI, PET and CT modalities, specifically analysis of regions consisting of multiple classes (partial volumes). I developed Bayesian probabilistic models to segment regions of the brain.

I obtained 1st Class Honours in Electronic and Computer Engineering from the University of Brighton in 2000. After which, I worked as a software engineer at Voxar, Edinburgh until Summer 2001, and studied for a Electronic Engineering Masters at the University of Surrey with a medical image analysis research project.

Research Interests

I am currently working on techniques for the automated analysis of 3D imaging data. This includes application to image analysis of XCT for nano-fibres for biomedical and health applications and steel fibre reinforced concrete. I am also working on automated video processing techniques with applications including assisted living and more general action recognition. I am continuing my research in the area of medical image analysis. I am also supervising graduate and research projects in the areas of signal processing including physiological signal processing.

Teaching Responsibilities

I teach a number of topics including Digital Signal Processing; Measurement Systems; Fourier Analysis; Electric Circuit Analysis; Video Coding; Statistical Techniques.
