Dr Andrew Gee, MA, PhD. Director of Studies in Engineering.
As Director of Studies I am responsible for organising all teaching for Engineering undergraduates. I also deliver College teaching in Part 1A on mathematics and electricity papers. I prefer to use an innovative mix of traditional supervisions and whole-cohort examples classes, allowing more contact hours than is usual.
I would recommend that potential applicants for Engineering find out as much as possible about the subject and what to expect at interview. There are some excellent resources at http://i-want-to-study-engineering.org/
My research involves the application of information engineering to topics in medical science, paleoanthropology and clinical practice. I have worked in medical imaging, computer vision, document image processing and neural networks. My current research is geared towards methods for large cohort studies involving medical image analysis. Cambridge is a great place for biomedical research due to its close links with Addenbrooke's Hospital. I am one of the authors of the Stradwin software suite, supporting ultrasound and CT research teams around the world.
In the Department of Engineering, I am overall coordinator of Part IIB projects. I lecture undergraduate courses in all aspects of computing including computer architecture, medical imaging and computer graphics. In 1998 I received the Pilkington Prize for excellence in teaching, an annual award to academic staff who have been nominated by Departments within the University.
