Steven Squires MSc Computer Science, 2015

Studying for a PhD in Machine Learning

“Southampton’s Electronics and Computer Science (ECS) has an excellent reputation. I originally completed my MSc in Computer Science here and have greatly enjoyed working in the department.

I really enjoy the challenge of working at the frontier of human knowledge

Machine learning

“I wanted to further my understanding of the machine learning field and work in cutting-edge research so I decided to continue at Southampton to study a PhD in Machine Learning. 

“My research is essentially in data analysis. The increasing quantity of data that is being produced means it is critical to apply and develop new tools to analyse this data. I really enjoy the challenge of working at the frontier of human knowledge. 

Meeting people

“I have been to a conference in Canada and was able to present my work and interact with other people working in a similar field. It also gave me a sense of the scale and scope of the area I am working in. 

“I would like to continue to work in the field of machine learning beyond my PhD either in an academic or industrial setting.”
