Experience

Studied at the University of Glamorgan where I received a first class honours in computer games development with the British computer society award for outstanding performance. During this time I had programming experience at Fanshawe college in Ontario, Canada when I worked for them for the summer. Now I am working on a PhD in collaboration with an external company.

Research

Currently researching a project including Augmented Reality (AR) combined with Stereoscopic Natural Feature Tracking (SNFT). AR is a technology that allows virtual objects to be superimposed over the real-world environment. The goal of the research is to use the benefits of stereoscopic computer vision to provide depth perception abilities, similar to human perception through their two eyes. Depth perception abilities provide a robust and fast NFT. The current avenue of research involves combining the SNFT to make a collision mesh in real-time by compiling an estimate of the depth starting with the extracted key features. The system is capable of allowing interaction of virtual content within the real scene.
