A Brief History.....
I have been at the University of Bath since September 1997 and have been
Head of Department since April 2013. 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 in ultrasound imaging techniques in the School of Electronics
& Computer Science at Southampton, I spent a short period of time in the
Relaxation Research Group at York working on hedge detection and matching in
synthetic aperture radar. My research is focussed on digital image processing
and computer vision, including the development of fundamental techniques in
addition to application areas such as remote sensing and biometrics. Current
research interests in which PhD projects are available include:
- 3D face recognition
- texture analysis and
tracking in remotely sensed images
- mathematical morphology
techniques for colour and multispectral image analysis
Further details on recent projects are provide below, see also my PURE Research
profile for publications, grants etc
Current Research interests:
- Biometrics: recognising
people by the 3D shape of their faces.
- 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.
