Personal profile

Research interests

I am a Royal Society Industry Fellow and work in the Department of Computer Science as a Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in Visual Computing and Machine Learning. I am an investigator in the CAMERA research centre and the Visual Computing Group.

I am interested in the modelling of shape and the use of machine learning techniques applied in the domain of computer vision (processing images from the real world) and graphics (creating and manipulating new images). Shape is such a fundamental component of graphics and vision that research in this field unifies the two subjects and there is obviously a great advantage to solving problems in both areas simultaneously since they help one-another. My latest ongoing research aims to learn automatically models of both man-made and natural shapes, and produce intelligent systems that make it easier to process, create and manipulate images. For further details please see my personal homepage for further details and publications.
