Prof. Sarah Barman

School/Department: Computer Science & Mathematics
Position: Professor


Sarah Barman is Professor in Computer Vision in the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Computing at Kingston University where she leads research into retinal image analysis and is Director of Research and Enterprise in the School of Computer Science and Mathematics. After completing her PhD in optical physics at King's College London she took up a postdoctoral position for the next four years, also at King's College, in image analysis. In 2000 she joined Kingston University.

Professor Barman is a member of the UK Biobank Eye and Vision consortium, a Fellow of the Institute of Physics and is a registered Chartered Physicist. She is a reviewer of UK research council and EU grants and held membership of the EPSRC College and Healthcare panel for six years.

Current projects led by Professor Barman are funded by the British Heart Foundation and Fight for Sight. Previous project funding has included support from UK research councils, the Leverhulme Trust, BUPA foundation and the Royal Society. She is the author of over 90 international scientific publications and book chapters.

Professor Barman's main area of interest in research is in the field of medical image analysis. Her work is currently focused on research into novel image analysis techniques to enable the recognition and quantification of features in ophthalmic images. Examples of this work include vessel width and tortuosity measurement on very large retinal fundus datasets, in addition to abnormality detection in diabetic retinopathy images.

Research Interests

Medical image analysis, retinal image analysis, quantification of vessel parameters.
