PhD Studentship in Geometric Modelling of 3D Point-Cloud Data

School of EECS, Queen Mary, University of London

Applications are invited, for a funded PhD studentship, to undertake 
research into 3D point-cloud representations of objects and scenes. All 
nationalities are eligible to apply for this position, which will start 
in September/October 2014.

The project will be concerned with modelling data from outdoor 
laser-scanners and indoor depth-cameras, as well as from multiple-view 
reconstructions. The primary objective is to develop new geometric 
representations of 3D point-clouds, based on recent work in applied 
mathematics and statistics. These representations will be designed to 
assist robotic scene-understanding and navigation.

The project will be based in the new interdisciplinary Centre for 
Intelligent Sensing at QMUL (http://cis.eecs.qmul.ac.uk/). The student 
will be supervised by Dr Miles Hansard and Prof Andrea Cavallaro (EECS), 
and will collaborate with Prof James Brasington (Geography).

Previous experience of working on SLAM / robot-mounted depth-cameras 
would be useful.
