[EXPIRED] Fully Funded PhD Scholarship

I am looking for a PhD student for the 3-year project entitled “Semi-Supervised, Unsupervised, and Self-Supervised Transfer Learning for Computer Vision”. Transfer learning has been demonstrated to improve the generalisation of deep neural networks to real-world applications, especially in situations where labelled training sets are missing. Current proposed methods work Read more…

Building a rhizobox imaging station

Field Trip In Debre Zeyt (Ethiopia)

From January 18th to February 2nd, I spent two weeks in Debre Zeyt, Ethiopia, as part of my task for the BBSRC GCF project I am currently working on (further details at http://chickpearoots.org).
