Hi! My name is Aly. I am currently the UK lead Research Engineer for Blippar. Prior to this I was doing computer vision research at Imperial College and before this, a software engineer at Goldman Sachs. So in short, I'm a geek. Check out the about page for more information.

About me


I obtained a Masters of Engineering (MEng) in Computer Science (2010) and a Masters of Philosophy (MPhil) in Computer Vision & Machine Learning (2014) both from Imperial College, London. In between these, I worked as a software engineer at Goldman Sachs for 2 years.

My previous research interests were focussed on Random Forests, mostly applied to pose estimation, both for articulated hand pose and for multiple instances of textureless 3D objects. This research resulted in two conference publications (CVPR and ECCV) and two journal submissions (under review for PAMI) as well as two filed patents. For more information, see below.


Currently, I am the UK Lead Research Engineer at Blippar. In this role, I co-wrote the augmented reality tracking engine for mobile devices, currently used by our app. However, in the more recent months I have shifted my focus to deep learning being applied to large-scale visual object recognition (Blippar’s visual browser). Our work in this field has been showcased in many major news outlets such as The Daily Mail, The Telegraph and The Wall Street Journal. Additionally, it has been demoed on major TV stations such as Bloomberg CNBC, Fox News NY and BBC London News.
