Martin Hailstone

I completed a BA in Natural Sciences and an MSci in Biochemistry in Cambridge, and since then have become increasingly involved in imaging and image processing, first in Singapore and now here in Oxford. I joined the EPSRC/MRC Oxford-Nottingham Biomedical Imaging DTC and the Davis lab in 2015, and now work on imaging and machine learning analysis approaches to understanding development. I have recently completed my DPhil in the Davis Lab and have begun work as a postdoctoral researcher.

current project

My current focus is on producing flexible methods for identifying cell types within the Drosophila larval brain. This allows researchers to do complex analyses of three dimensional images of living tissue. Specifically in the Davis lab I have been working on developing imaging software to efficiently map cell fate of developing Drosophila brains.
