Academic Profile: Professor David Murray
Fellow and Tutor in Engineering Science, Professor of Engineering Science
I was an undergraduate at Balliol, taking a first in physics in 1977 and continuing there to complete a DPhil in 1980, studying properties of radioactive nuclei by orienting them at ultralow temperatures via their magnetic and electric hyperfine interactions. I was a Research Fellow, again in nuclear physics, at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), before joining the General Electric Company's laboratories in London, where I developed research interests in computational vision. I moved to the University of Oxford and St Anne's in 1989 as a University Lecturer and Tutorial Fellow, and was made a Professor of Engineering Science in 1997.
