Dr Wen Xiao joined the Geomatics group within the School of Engineering as a lecturer in 2016. His research interests lie in the integration of artificial intelligence, computer vision and robotics, with photogrammetry, laser scanning and remote sensing, applied to urban and natural environments. The vision is to develop Multiscale Multimodal Modelling and Monitoring (M4) systems to tackle environment and development problems for the UN sustainable development goals. Studies include infrastructure and transport systems monitoring, hazard monitoring and impact analysis, deformation/change detection and monitoring, from various sensing platforms, e.g. static and mobile mapping systems, airborne systems including UAVs, CCTV and crowdsourcing.
