Research Summary

Zak is currently reseraching novel ways of using computer vision to visualise, measure and optimise mid-air ultrasound haptic feedback. His current work includes not only traditional cameras, but also high-speed and thermal cameras, in order to make up various imaging set-ups including schlieren imaging. He also works to support other academics in UCL and other research universities and bodies such as the Francis Crick Institute and the University of Roehampton London in tasks which require programming experience.

He is supervised by Dr. Youngjun Cho and Prof. Sriram Subramanian and is funded by the Royal Academy of Engineering Chairs in Emerging Technology Scheme (CiET1718/14).
