Pam obtained the degree of MEng (Electronic and Computer) from the University of Aberdeen in 2001. She then spent 11 years working for a world class supplier of video compression codecs, implementing standards such as MPEG2, AVC and HEVC on a variety of platforms from FPGAs to bespoke microprocessors. After taking time out to raise a family, she returned to computer science and spent some time working on video analysis on mobile devices as part of a Knowledge Transfer Partnership. She is currently studying for a PhD at Robert Gordon University and her research interests include the application of deep neural networks in video analysis, particularly visual object tracking and feature engineering.
