MA: Natural Sciences Tripos, Cambridge. (Experimental Physics in final year.) PhD: Geophysics, Cambridge, in the area of earth strain measurement and interpretation. Research Fellow, Department of Psychology, University of Edinburgh, working on human visual perception and motor control, 1980-1985. Lecturer and Senior Lecturer in Artificial Intelligence, University of Sussex, since 1985.


My research focuses on Image Analysis and Computer Vision. Before retiring from a Senior Lectureship I taught courses in this subject at all levels and supervised a number of DPhil students. I am also interested in programming techniques and a variety of other topics within Artificial Intelligence. Previously, as Director of Student Support in the school of Science and Technology, I co-ordinated the school's work on student welfare, progress and retention.
