I am a principal researcher and research manager at Microsoft Research (Cambridge UK) where I lead the interactive 3D technologies (I3D) group. This is an extremely multi-discipline group, which straddles many boundaries including human-computer interaction, augmented reality, applied computer vision and graphics, electronics, signal processing, and optics.

My research focuses on building new technologies and systems that blur the boundaries between real and virtual interaction. This typically involves building new types of depth cameras, sensors or displays; creating practical algorithms and techniques for these types of novel technologies; as well as designing new user experiences that are enabled through this technical research.

A tiny bit more navel gazing: I’ve been at Microsoft Research over 9 years, spent time at Xerox PARC before and prior to that did my PhD at the Mixed Reality Lab (Nottingham). I was awarded a TR35 in 2009 and a Microsoft Next award in 2012.

I've published over 90 research papers (see DBLP & Scholar), and over 90 patents. These include various best paper awards.

My work has led to products such as the Microsoft Touch Mouse, Kinect for Windows, Kinect Fusion, and most recently HoloLens.

News:

  • Very proud of the I3D team and their contributions to the HoloLens product that was recently announced. We've spent considerable time embedded with the product group, working on many parts of the platform! 

  • We are now hiring for various positions in the I3D team (including researchers, postdocs, interns, SDEs etc), please send me email if you are interested!
