Dr Vassilis Cutsuridis - Programme Leader
Dr Vassilis Cutsuridis is an expert at the interface between AI and Neuroscience. He is broadly interested in reverse engineering how the brain and mind work in order to understand the neural circuits and systems that give rise to mental experience and to extract the neural algorithms for the design and development of more efficient intelligent methods and systems for complex data analysis. After a 10 years in the software industry, he returned to academia in 2006 to hold research and teaching positions in Europe, UK, US, and China.Academic Staff List Make an Enquiry

How you are assessed
There is a range of equipment for loan, including Raspberry Pi devices, smartphones, robots, and virtual reality equipment such as HTC Vive and Oculus Quest.
Applications and Enrolment
The key to a successful programme is to find a research subject that you are passionate about, and a supervisory team that has expertise in that area.
You can find out more about research in the School of Computer Science on our research pages at https://www.lincoln.ac.uk/home/socs/research.
To support your experience within the postgraduate research community, new students are encouraged to enrol in October, February, or May.
In addition to meeting peers across the University who are starting their research programme at the same time, there is access to a central training programme designed around the first three months of study, and targeted support aligned to each stage of the postgraduate research journey. Alternative enrolment dates may be agreed with your supervisor on an individual basis.
Entry Requirements 2022-23
This programme provides students with the opportunity to develop a specialism in an area of Computer Science. The study and development of research knowledge may allow students to consolidate their skills and secure positions in research development and the management of technology. Graduates may move into an academic-related roles such as postdoctoral researchers or research assistants. Graduates may also progress to roles in the computing industry.
