A Brief History.....
I have been at the University of Bath since September 1997 and am currently
a member of the Telecommunications, Space and Radar (TSaR) Group and the Centre
for Space, Atmospheric & Oceanic Science. Prior to this I was an Assistant
Lecturer and then Lecturer in the Department of Production Technology, Massey University New Zealand. I claim no
responsibility for the disbandment of this Department just a few months after
my departure, the remains of which was institutionalised to form the Institute of Information Sciences and Technology.
Stepping back in time, after completing my PhD, entitled "Spatial and
Temporal Speckle Filtering for Feature Extraction in Ultrasound Images", I
spent a short period of time in the Relaxation Research Group at York working on hedge
detection and matching in synthetic aperture radar. Current research projects
include the development of techniques for imaging of the polar ionosphere (PhD
student Matt Foster) and colour image filtering and segmentation (PhD student
David Gimenez). Recent work includes a Qinetiq funded project on the
multi-scale texture segmentation of synthetic aperture radar images (PhD
student Neil Fletcher), psychovisually optimal noise reduction (PhD student
Nick Young) and efficient motion estimation (PhD student Simon Tredwell) for
video coding, both supported by NDS Limited.
Current Research interests:
recognising people by the shape of their noses.
- Colour and Multispectral Image Processing:
colour edge detection; nonlinear filtering; colour image noise reduction
and segmentation using scale-space sieves.
- Motion Estimation: motion estimation and
analysis of non-rigid bodies (clouds, glaciers etc), object-based motion.
- Nonlinear Image
Processing: mathematical morphological sieves, granulometric texture
analysis, multivariate morphology.
- Application Areas:
remote sensing, surveillance, medical imaging and video coding.
