Dr Zoe Jeffrey is a full time principal lecturer in the School of Physics, Engineering and Computer Science at University of Hertfordshire. She received her BEng in Electronics and Computer Engineering and MSc in Nanotechnology and Nanoelectronics Devices at University of Surrey, UK in 2006 and 2007 respectively. She then completed her PhD in Electrical and Electronic Engineering at University of Hertfordshire, UK in 2013 focusing on real time ANPR algorithms on ARM-DSP SoC platforms. She is a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
- Currently, a full time principal lecturer in the School of Physics, Engineering and Computer Science at UH.
- Currently, a knowlege transfter principal investigator in partnership with Ziath, developing and embedding machine learning, image processing and System-on-Chip (SoC) capabilities into Ziath's next generation bio- sample scanning devices.
- Worked for UH as an experimental officer.
- Worked for UH as a researcher.
- Worked for Cintel International in Ware, UK as a design engineer.
- Worked for SONY Research and Development Laboratory in Basingstoke, where she gained experience in real time image processing on embedded processors (FPGAs and GPUs).
Her research interests are signal processing algorithms for object detection and recognition, custom computing and real time System-on-Chip solutions using ARM based processors, DSPs, FPGAs and GPUs. She is also interested in intelligent transportation systems and vehicular traffic management.
Worked on various Hardware and software technologies from ARM, National Instruments, NVIDIA, Texas Instruments and Xilinx, and she is competent in C, C++, JAVA, VHDL, Verilog HDL, OpenGL ES, MATLAB and LabVIEW programming.
Her latest research is focused on developing real time ANPR algorithms on SoC platforms and machine learning (deep learning for image processing on ARM/DSP/FPGA)
