Dr David Young PhD, MA
My first degree and PhD were at Cambridge. I graduated in Natural Sciences, specialising in physics, in 1975, then carried out geophysical research on earth strain to get my PhD in 1980.
I worked as a research fellow in the Department of Psychology, Edinburgh University, until 1985, in the area of human visual perception and motor control.
From 1985 until 2010 I was a lecturer, then senior lecturer, at Sussex University, working on machine vision and artificial intelligence.
Since 2013 I have been associated with Electronics and Computer Science at Southampton as a research assistant and visitor, working with Kirk Martinez and Jon Hare on a variety of projects involving image analysis, including measuring the flow of a glacial discharge river, finding structure in aerial images using machine learning, and building hardware and software to make 3-D models of cylinder seals from the Ancient Near East.
Trivia: I have been to Southamptonbreen.
