Associate Professor of Cyber-Physical Systems
Department of Computer Science
BSc Waikato, MEng Cornell, PhD Dartmouth
Dr Nicholas Lane is an Associate Professor in the Computer Science department and Official Fellow of Kellogg College from 1 October 2017. Nic graduated with a BSc(Hons) in Computer Science and Finance (2002) from Waikato University, followed by a MEng (2004) from Cornell University and a PhD from Dartmouth College (2011). He has been a Senior Lecturer at University College London and Principal Scientist at Nokia Bell Labs in Cambridge. Prior to moving to England in 2015, Nic spent four years at Microsoft Research in Beijing.
His broad research interests revolve around the systems and modelling challenges that arise when computers collect and reason about human-related sensor data. For the past two years, he has focused on (i) developing high precision deep learning models of human behaviour and context, and (ii) enabling state-of-the-art signal processing and modelling algorithms to efficiently execute on embedded- and mobile-class hardware.
