My research interests are in the theory and application of mathematics and computer science. The first area is Euler equations on diffeomorphism groups, with a particular focus on shape analysis. Applications of shape analysis include medical imaging, machine vision, and biology, with my focus being the first of these. The second area in which I work is machine learning, including its application to human behaviour recognition and smart homes, and also to software. Finally, I have an interest in complexity, complex systems and scientific computation, particularly the links between the theory of complex networks and more traditional graph theory.
Shape analysis, diffeomorphism groups, machine learning, smart homes, complexity, complex networks.
