Job Description: 

School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science, Queen Mary, University of London

Applications are invited, for a funded PhD studentship, to undertake research into 3D point-cloud representations of objects and scenes. All nationalities are eligible to apply for this position, which will start in September/October 2014.

The project will be concerned with modelling data from outdoor laser-scanners and indoor depth-cameras, as well as from multiple-view reconstructions. The primary objective is to develop new geometric representations of 3D point-clouds, based on recent work in applied mathematics and statistics (e.g. Discrete Differential Geometry and Topological Data Analysis). Previous experience in computer vision is not required, but experience in scientific programming is essential.

The project will be based in the new interdisciplinary Centre for Intelligent Sensing at QMUL ( The student will be supervised by Dr Miles Hansard and Prof Andrea Cavallaro (EECS), and will collaborate with Prof James Brasington (Geography).
