Projects & Dissertations

I supervise projects related to the Statistics modules I teach, as well as on topics in my research areas. All these topics listed below overlap heavily, and all are available to all students independently of their course (e.g. Math, CS, Eng). For instance the topic 'deep learning' can be investigated from a Math and Stats perspectives, as well as a Computer Science and Engineering perspective (e.g. as part of applications in Computer vision or audio processing).

Statistics... Keywords: Stochastic processes in space and time, Qgis, time series analysis, R,
Mathematics ... Keywords: Optimal transport, copulas, radon transform, information theory,...
Machine Learning & classification ... Keywords: deep learning, support vector machines,...
Computer Vision & pattern recognition ... Keywords: Colour transfer, image processing, object detection, 3D reconstruction from multiple views, shape registration,...
Signal Processing ... Keywords: source separation, audio processing, social media data analysis, data synthesis, Independent Component Analysis, ...
Visualization & Computer Graphics... 3D cities, Lidar data, material rendering, 3D data semantic segmentation game engine (unity, unreal), pedestrian modelling,...
