Luke has been researching natural and artificial visual systems since 2006. At the University of Bristol, he investigated human reflectance perception and developed visual biometric methods for monitoring endangered species. He then obtained his PhD at UCL focusing on modelling human attention during driving with computer vision and machine learning methods. After continuing this line of work, first with Toyota R&D in Brussels and then as a post-doctoral fellow at UCL, he spent a year as a machine learning researcher in the fin-tech sector developing face and voice recognition systems.
