    About Georgios Leontidis

    George is a Lecturer (USA equivalent to Assistant Professor) in Computer Science (Machine Learning) and a former Marie Curie Researcher in the College of Science, working with the DVC Professor Andrew Hunter in the EU-FP7 Marie Curie actions REVAMMAD project. Before joining the academic staff at University of Lincoln, Georgios worked for a leading company on radiation oncology in Germany as a Data Scientist and Program/Project Manager, working on defining quality assurance indexes for the whole treatment. This included predicting machine failures and treatment outcome, utilising machine learning, data analytics and big data processes. During this period, he actively collaborated with the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg in Germany and the University of California in San Francisco. His research outcomes have been published in various international journals, conferences and book chapters, and has also been invited to give interviews in a Radio station, newspapers and scientific magazines in regards to his novel research activity on early diagnosis of diabetic retinopathy. Georgios has also appeared in the annual magazine of the University of Lincoln.
    Our newly founded Machine Learning Research Group here in Lincoln is a member of the EPSRC Network on Computational Statistics and Machine Learning (NCSML).

    PhD or MSc by Research: Looking for a self-funded students to work on various projects on deep learning and machine learning, across many applications e.g. Nuclear Plant & Gas Turbines failures, Parkinson’s disease, animal tracking and localisation, and retinal diseases.
