University of Buckingham - Alaa AlzoubiDr. Alaa AlZoubi is a Research Fellow in Machine Learning and Computer Vision at The University of Buckingham. He holds a BSc in Computer Information System, MSc Computer Information System, and a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Lincoln in 2017. Prior to join the School of Computing, Alaa was a Research Fellow in Computer Vision at the Centre for Electronic Warfare Information and Cyber, Cranfield University, Defence Academy of the United Kingdom.

Dr. AlZoubi specialises in Computer Vision, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Medical Image Analysis, Time Series Analysis, Autonomous Systems, and Geographic Information System (GIS). He has more than 8 years of industrial experience, in Computer Vision R&D, and GIS as a Senior Software Engineer.

If you are passionate about doing master by research or PhD in computer vision, deep learning, medical image analysis or autonomous systems areas and have excellent programming skills, please feel free to contact me.

Recently, Alaa won a research grant funded by Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) to investigate the development of robotics and remote sensing technologies to help with safer land mine surveying.
