Professor Matuszewski heads the Computer Vision and Machine Learning (CVML) Research Group. His main research interest is in data analysis, and in recent years he has mainly focused on analysis of visual information, working in the areas of medical and industrial computer vision and machine learning. He has led and participated in a number of externally and internally funded projects as well as supervised a large number of PhDs with a focus on developing new image/vision analysis algorithms and their use in real applications. He is particularly interested in the use of Bayesian methodology for data modelling, pattern recognition and tracking; statistical shape analysis; deformation modelling for model-based recognition, segmentation and registration; and applications of deep learning. Most recently he has developed interests in interpretable Machine Learning, with applications to autonomous exploration of unknown environments and medical diagnostics.
