I recently stood down (on 30 November 2013) as Head of this Division, and am now plain Professor, getting back more deeply into research.
I am Research Co-ordinator for the Division of Computing Science and Mathematics, and a member of the Cognitive Computation (CogComp) Research Group here. My own primary interests are in early auditory processing, spike-based computing and the interconnection of real (cultured) neurons and electronics. I am co-ordinator of the UK Neuroinformatics Node which is the UK Node of the INCF and chair of the UKCRC Grand Challenge GC-5 Architecture of the Brain and Mind.
In Autumn semester, 2014-15, I teach on
I have previously taught on many courses, and set up and organised the Digital media (DGM901) module (now defunct).
I am also involved with recruitment of students for our courses.
Yes, I am a person with other interests too. I have a wife and family, and play jazz/blues/folk piano, though I'm not currently a member of any specific band.
