Dr Ronald Clark
Fellow, Official Fellow
Department of Computer Science
DPhil (Oxon), BSc and MSc (Witwatersrand, SA)
Ronald received his MSc in Information Engineering from the University of the Witwatersrand and DPhil in Computer Science from the University of Oxford. From 2017 to 2020 he was a member of the Dyson Robotics Lab and subsequently held an Imperial College Research Fellowship. In September 2022 he joined the University of Oxford as an Associate Professor.
Ronald’s research interests lie at the intersection of 3D Computer Vision and Computer Graphics. His work focuses on bridging the gap between the real world and the digital world, and centres around the development of novel 3D vision techniques that can be used to advance the state-of-the-art in areas such as Augmented Reality, Indoor Robotics and the Physical Science. He specialises in the areas of:
• Neural Rendering: photorealistic reconstruction, novel view synthesis, appearance acquisition
• Dense Visual SLAM: 3D scene representations, state-estimation, numerical optimization
• Scene Understanding: 3D semantic segmentation, 3D object detection and tracking
His work has received various accolades including a Best Paper Honourable Mention at CVPR in 2018.
