Dr Jean-Christophe Nebel

Following undergraduate studies in Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics, Dr Nebel completed an MScEng and a PhD in Computing Science. His insatiable curiosity supported by his broad scientific education have led him to be involved in a variety of multi-disciplinary projects from computer aided orthognathic surgery [1], 3D thermography [2] to human action recognition [3] and protein sequence analysis [4]. Not only has research in human cognition, such as Reasoning, Linguistics, Biomechanics and Behavioural Neuroscience, informed his work in Computer Vision [3,5,6] and Bioinformatics [4], but he currently studies Human Vision. Using a bioinformatics approach, he investigates proteins involved in human lens, i.e. crystallins, to get a better insight into its transparency and rheology.
