I am a Research Software Engineer in the Visual Geometry Group (VGG) of the Department of Engineering Science at Oxford University. My work is supervised by Prof. Andrew Zisserman.

As an independent R&D consultant, I am now supporting engineering team of many companies and start-ups working on product development. I enjoy being challenged with real world problems. I have proven experience of developing innovative solutions using Computer Vision, Machine Learning and Computer Graphics. Here are some examples of my ongoing and past projects:

  • Instantaneously searching millions of images or thousands of hours of videos
  • Tracking objects or people in surveillance (or general) video
  • Automatic face recognition for biometrics and surveillance
  • Gathering intelligence about human activity and surroundings based on sensor data
  • Football player performance analytics based on smart and light-weight wearable devices
  • Large scale manual and collaborative annotation of images, audio and videos
  • Comparing a pair of images aligned automatically using computer vision methods
  • Capture of 3D face shape and skin reflectance for photo-realistic rendering of human faces in movies and games

I received doctorate from the University of Twente (Netherlands) in 2015 for pursuing scientific research in modelling the relationship between image quality and performance of face recognition systems. During my MSc in Computer Science (by research) at the University of York (UK), I created a novel face shape and reflection acquisition device called the “Multispectral Light Stage”. I teamed up with a lot of wonderful people to work on a large number of exciting projects during my Bachelor’s degree in Computer Engineering at the Institute of Engineering – Pulchowk Campus of Tribhuvan University (Kathmandu, Nepal). I cherish and treasure these experiences and associations.

I enjoy getting involved in hobby electronics and contributing to open source ecosystem. I am also passionate about photography and I still dream of becoming a writer. Here are some of my favourite blog posts:

I am a strong supporter of Open Source ecosystem and I use the alias thelinuxmaniac for all my contributions to open source projects — adutta.np for wikipedia/wikivoyage.
