About me

I studied Pure Mathematics at Southampton University, and first came to Oxford to do my DPhil in the Department of Engineering on automated understanding of images (“Computer Vision”) - this is a topic that has fascinated me ever since. After leaving Oxford I joined Microsoft Research, working there for several years both in Seattle and then later at their research laboratory  in Cambridge (England). I then moved to Oxford Brookes to establish a new research group in Computer Vision that won several academic and industrial awards for its output before returning to Oxford University’s Department of Engineering as University research professor.  In 2007 I was made a Wolfson Research Merit Award Holder.  You can read about it here.

My personal webpage can be found here.

Research

Computer Vision is about getting computers to “see” as well as we do. It is an enterprise involving people in many areas from biologists to mathematicians, from psychologists to computer scientists and engineers, who have been working for many years to understand its underlying mathematical and computational principles.

I have been awarded the prestigious European Advanced Investigator Award which provides 2.5 million Euros to set up a new research group at Oxford.

Publications can be found here.

Some videos of my research can be found here and here.

Graduate supervision

I run a large research group of graduate students and postdoctoral researchers. I am always on the lookout for new recruits but only if you really rank amongst the best of your peers. Details about the group can be found here.

Eleanor Stride

BEng, PhD UCL, MA Oxf

Teaching

I currently lecture in Mathematics for first year Engineering Science students and in Nanotechnology and Drug Delivery for D.Phil. Students in the Centre for Doctoral Training in Healthcare Innovation (http://www.ibme.ox.ac.uk/training/cdt) in addition to supervising third and fourth year and Masters student projects.

About me

I hold a BEng and PhD from University College London. Following the completion of my PhD in 2005 I was appointed to a lectureship and a Royal Academy of Engineering and EPSRC Research Fellowship and subsequently a Readership in 2010. I joined the Institute of Biomedical Engineering in Oxford in October 2011 when I also became a Fellow of St. Catherine’s.

Research

I am part of the Biomedical Ultrasonics, Biotherapy and Biopharmaceutical Laboratory (BUBBL http://www.ibme.ox.ac.uk/research/non-invasive-therapy-drug-delivery) and my research is focused in two complementary areas:

(1) Drug delivery systems engineering

Advanced encapsulation methods for the fabrication of drug carriers

Controlled release and biophysics of therapeutic delivery -Theranostics and treatment monitoring

(2) Biomedical ultrasonics

Engineering microbubble agents for diagnostic and therapeutic applications

Physics of cavitation in high intensity focused ultrasound

Biophysical effects of ultrasound

Graduate Supervision

I currently supervise 8 DPhil students working in biomedical ultrasonics and drug delivery.
