Jamie Shotton studied Computer Science at the University of Cambridge, and remained at Cambridge for his PhD in Computer Vision and Visual Object Recognition. He joined Microsoft Research in 2008 where he is now a Senior Researcher in the Machine Learning & Perception group. His research interests include human pose and shape estimation, object recognition, machine learning, gesture and action recognition, and medical imaging. His work on machine learning for body part recognition for Kinect was awarded the Best Paper award at the IEEE Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR) 2011, and the Royal Academy of Engineering's MacRobert Award 2011. He and the Kinect team received Microsoft's Outstanding Technical Achievement Award in 2012.
