Stephen Matthews

I am a Research Associate in the Open Lab group. My research focuses on analysing animal and human behaviour using machine learning, data mining, and computational intelligence.

I work on a BBSRC and Innovate UK (previously Technology Strategy Board) funded project that seeks to automatically identify early warning signs of health and welfare problems in pigs using computer vision and environmental information. This is a collaboration with the university's School of Agriculture, Food and Rural Development and four industry partners Zoetis, Innovent Technology Ltd, RAFT Solutions Ltd and Harbro Ltd.
