Research Interests


My current work is in novel image processing as part of collaboration with an artist (*), and in lossy compression.

My past research interests include automated database systems integration, non-linear image filters, image feature separation, image processing for computer art, creaseless fractal terrain simulation, shape modelling and fractal texturing, simulation of galactic evolution, tunnel lining stress analysis, molecular property prediction, numerical solution of differential equations, and spatial dichotomies.
