Sherman Ip

I am a PhD student in the OxWaSP CDT program. I am working with Thomas Nichols and Julia Brettschneider, part of the Inside-Out group, on X-ray CT scans with applications to 3D printing.

My main interests are in:

3D Printed Cuboid with significant pixels

(Above) Greyvalues of an x-ray scan of a 3D printed cuboid. In red are significant pixels at the 5σ level.


Sherman is from Maidenhead and studied at University College London. He completed his MSci Physics degree in 2014. During his physics degree, he became interested in statistics and as a result his physics project was on the computational and statistical analysis of 3D imaging of a human chromosome at the London Center for Nanotechnology. Following on, he then completed a MSc Computational Statistics and Machine Learning degree in 2015, and was awarded the Dean's List for outstanding academic performance. His project was on the multivariate regression view of multi-label classification. In his spare time, Sherman enjoys shooting arrows at the local archery range and competes in tournaments.
