Research interests

I am currently working on an archive of early developments in computer graphics at the University of Manchester where, from 1974 until 1987, I was Director of the Computer Graphics Unit.

Prior to retirement, my interests included building 3D models from photographs, and novel interfaces based on 3D video-based tracking, software sytems for large-scale virtual environments, scientific visualisation on large parallel computers, and software and standards for computer graphics.
