My name is Richard Stebbing and I am a software engineer based in the San Francisco Bay Area, specializing in developing and implementing machine learning and computer vision algorithms for a variety of applications. Until earlier this year, I was Director of Machine Learning of a stealth machine intelligence company, and I've most recently been working on applications to support a quantitative hedge fund.
Previously, I completed my DPhil in the Institute of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Oxford where I was funded on a Rhodes Scholarship and supervised by Alison Noble. My DPhil research was on model-based segmentation of 2D and 3D ultrasound images and sequences with a specific focus on echocardiography. During this period, I also did a couple of stints at Microsoft Research where I was supervised by Andrew Fitzgibbon. I am originally from Auckland, New Zealand, where I studied Electrical and Electronic Engineering in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Auckland. Before this I went to Northcote College.
The primary purpose of this site is to host information and code about projects I have worked on and think may be useful to others. The website is continuously under construction (albeit infrequently updated) so more of these things will become available as I get time to put them up.
