Toby Collins received the BSc degree in computer science in 2004 at the University of Cambridge, UK and the MSc degree in Artificial Intelligence at the University of Edinburgh, UK (first in class) in 2005. He was a PhD student in the University of Edinburgh, UK between 2006-2009, and then switched groups to join the computer vision group at the Université d'Auvergne, France. Since then he has been a full-time researcher at the Université d'Auvergne. His research interests include nonrigid shape analysis, 3D reconstruction from videos, keypoint matching, intra-modal registration, augmented reality with nonrigid objects and realtime systems for computer assisted intervention. He has published over 30 peer reviewed articles in top conferences and journals in computer vision and medical imaging. He received the audience best paper prize in the 2012 International Conference on Information Processing in Computer-Assisted Interventions (IPCAI) for the paper "Towards Live Monocular 3D Laparoscopy Using Shading and Specularity Information". He currently co-supervises two PhD students (Mathias Gallardo and Shaifali Parashar) on the European Research Council Project Flexable (http://flexable.u-clermont1.fr).
