Hi there, and thanks for visiting my site.
I'm Zane, a third year Computer Science PhD student at the University of Nottingham working within the Computer Vision Lab under the supervision of Dr Andrew French and Dr Michael Pound.

During my time at the University of Nottingham the focuses of my studies have been Computer Vision and Machine Learning. Both of my undergraduate dissertations have focused on Deep Learning and Computer Vision, and have given me experience in Tensorflow and Caffe working with Deep Convolutional Neural Networks.

During my studies I also spent a year working at Power Vigilance Technologies where I gained experience in Web Development using the MEAN stack, and embedded software development using Python and C.

Be sure to check out my CV and feel free to get in touch with me at zane.hartley@nottingham.ac.uk


Feel free to download a copy of my CV.
As of July 2019 I have now graduated from the University of Nottingham with a MSci in Computer Science where I achieved a first class degree.
Please feel free to get in touch if you'd like to collaborate on any projects.


My PhD work focused on deep learning applied to Plant Phenotyping and was supervised by Dr Andrew French. My work included domain adaptation, 3D reconstruction and object detection. You can find me on Google Scholar too.
