    Personal profile


    Rob is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Computer Science at Edge Hill University. His research interests include the development of new machine learning algorithms for imbalanced learning problems, real-time data processing, image analysis, robotics, and the ethics of A.I.

    Rob holds a PhD in machine learning gained during his time at The University of Manchester. He also holds a Masters degree in Advanced Computer Science, and an undergraduate degree in Software Development, both from the University of Liverpool. The latter was put to good use during the time Rob spent as a Software Engineer in industry. Prior to joining Edge Hill University, he spent four years as a Research Associate at the University of Manchester. Here he helped design the analytic pipeline for the world’s largest and most advanced radio telescope, the Square Kilometre Array.
