Violet’s academic background is in computer science and engineering, including a PhD in computer vision at CVSSP (Centre for Vision, Speech and Signal Processing) at the University of Surrey. She has also spent many years in industry, doing both algorithmic research into motion estimation and compression, for which she holds a number of international patents, and software development for major projects in Java, C++, and a wild assortment of other languages.

Her research interests cover a variety of image processing and analysis applications, as well as machine learning of any kind.


As a new member of the Institute of Industrial Research, I am exploring a number of directions for future collaborative projects based on machine learning and computer vision, with particular focus on commercial real-world applications.
