Sherman Lo (PhD Student)

Maintained until 25th April 2021

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:


Sherman studied at University College London and 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.
