About me

Dr. Wenhao Zhang is co-director of the Centre for Machine Vision, Bristol Robotics Laboratory. Wenhao had completed a BEng degree in Automation, a MEng degree in Control, and a MSc degree in Electronics before he undertook his PhD study at the CMV on 3D computer vision analysis of human demographics and behaviours. Wenhao's current research interests include computer vision and machine learning for Agri-tech and Health-tech. Wenhao is an HEA fellow and has a passion for designing and implementing practice-led, research-informed teaching. Wenhao is currently module leaders for UFMFRR-15-M Machine Vision, UFCFFV-15-M Advanced AI, Computer Vision, and Cyber Security, and UFMFKA-30-2 Microcontrollers Applications Group Laboratory.

Wenhao was recently featured amongst the 'UWE 30 to watch' list. Some of Wenhao's projects include:
