Having graduated from Loughborough University in 2008 with a first class masters (MComp) degree in Computer Science, I returned to Loughborough University after two years working on international projects in industry, deciding to follow research interests developed during my Masters thesis.

Having become the de facto standard in computer aided geometric design, developments in rational parameterisations are subject to much on-going research, and have a wide variety of applications. My chosen sector of research has diverse applications ranging from CNC machining, aeroplane and engine design through to animation and font design.

  • Computational Geometry, specifically rational parameterisations
  • Optimisation
