I started at the University of Huddersfield in 1997 on the newly formed Bsc Multimedia Technology degree in the School of Engineering (now the School of Computing and Engineering). 1997 was an important year for another reason, although I didn't realise how important at the time. Panoramic Imaging was just reaching the general public and had attracted my interest. After the degree and lots of money spent on panoramic imaging equipment I started my PhD, still at the University, under the excellent guidance of Prof. Gui Yun Tian and Prof. David Taylor and sponsored by the EPSRC and Rotography Ltd. Part time lecturing led to a full time post as a senior lecturer in Digital Media in the Department of Informatics in the School of Computing and Engineering. Recently my research interests have expanded into Accessibility, specifically related to the internet and how we can make the internet and world wide web as accessible as possible for as many people as possible, no matter what their circumstances are.
Current research interests include computer vision, image processing and more recently accessibility for the world wide web.
For computer vision and image processing I am part of the Computer Graphics and Image Processing research group in the School of Computing and Engineering and work in areas such as colour correction and correspondence for stereo imaging and panoramic imaging. My personal interest at the moment is using interest points to determine correspondence for accurate image mosaicing with the intention of increasing speed and accuracy of panoramic imaging technologies. I am also interested in pursuing panoramic video as a future project, having recently received a small grant to build a prototype system using 6 cameras.
For accessibility I am interested in making the world wide web more accessible. This includes research into human computer interfaces and how they can be used to enhance the experience. It also includes technical investigation, the w3c provide web accessibility guidelines but putting those into practice is not always so easy.
