Current interests

Various aspects of computer vision, including 2D and 3D facial analysis and synthesis.

Example Research Title:

Non-Photorealistic Rendering Rendering images in a minimal and artistic manner.

Application Area:

Generating attractive graphics for print publications and webpages.


The challenge is to remove distracting and unnecessary detail, while at the same time determining and retaining the salient information. For arbitrary unconstrained images this is difficult. Our approach tackles the problem by combining multiple techniques such as line extraction, thresholding, segmentation, salience measures.

Looking for Commercial Partners:

To support and develop applications of Non-Photorealistic Rendering


Example Projects

  • Modelling the Change in 3D Head Dynamics and Appearance

    Modelling the Change in 3D Head Dynamics and Appearance

    The development of 3D (and also 2D) statistical models of facial dynamics with applications to medical/dental, computer graphics, animation and computer vision.

  • Non-photorealistic rendering

    Non-photorealistic rendering

    The team in Cardiff have developed their approach using computer vision techniques to produce a combination of lines and tonal blocks (black and also white for highlighting) to create an abstracted artistic rendering.

  • Visualizing Image Statistics

    Visualizing Image Statistics

    Natural image statistics is an important area of research in cognitive sciences and computer vision.
