The Imaging Concepts Group pioneers new techniques in computational imaging, retinal imaging and biomedical imaging, including computational scanning laser ophthalmoscopy, optical-coherence tomography and imaging of retinopathy of prematurity.
In this project the student will develop and apply new techniques for quantitative retinal imaging, using emerging techniques in computational imaging to produce a new type of retinal camera able to combine imaging with an unprecedented resolution and field of view.The student will use and apply the principles of optics, imaging and mathematics at a deep level and will develop a working understanding of the relevant biology through specialist courses and through collaboration with clinicians and biologists.
The student will work within the Imaging Concepts Group consisting of two academics, ten PhD and EngD students and six post-doctoral researchers conducting fundamental research into the development of a range of advanced imaging techniques and their application in biological, medical, consumer imaging, remote sensing and surveillance fields. The group conducts collaborative research with industry and academic researchers across the UK and Internationally within newly refurbished researcher laboratories benefitting from over £1M of recent investment.
The position will suit somebody with a good first degree in Physics, Electronic Engineering or similar who enjoys combining theory, experimental and computational techniques and is attracted to research at the life-science interface. An enthusiasm for innovation and speculative thinking is particularly encouraged.
The student will be expected to work closely with our industry partners: a major ophthalmic instrumentation company. A successful outcome to the project would be a laboratory system suitable for development into a commercial sysem.
