There are usually six undergraduates in each year studying Engineering Science at Mansfield.
Mansfield has two full-time Engineering fellows, Prof Sinan Acikgoz and Prof Vicente Grau, and two college lecturers, Dr Chris Vogel and Dr Tingting Zhu.
Prof Grau’s research interests include development of biomedical image analysis techniques (image segmentation, single and multi-modality image registration, estimation of motion from medical image sequences), and application of biomedical image analysis to clinical and experimental problems. He has a special interest in the combination of biomedical image analysis techniques with computational models in order to a) build more accurate, more detailed organ models in healthy and pathological conditions; b) personalise the models to particular subjects and c) introduce in the models the statistical variations that may appear
Prof Acikgoz’s teaching and research interests are in the field of structural engineering. His research investigates monitoring, assessment and retrofit of ageing structures, which are facing unprecedented risks due to man-made and natural hazards. His research interests include masonry structures, structural health monitoring, structural dynamics, soil-structure interaction, and risk and vulnerability.
Dr Vogel's research interests centre around fluid mechanics, including wind and tidal stream energy, as well as reduced-order modelling of high Reynolds number flows. He teaches the first and second year thermodynamics and fluid dynamics courses at Mansfield.
Dr Zhu specialises in information and biomedical engineering where artificial intelligence interacts with medicine. She investigates the development of machine learning for understanding complex patient data, with a special emphasis on Bayesian inference, deep learning, and applications involving the developing world. Dr Zhu teaches engineering mathematics; she also teaches fourth-year undergraduates in Biomedical Signal Processing.
