Swansea University computer scientists have worked in a broad range of subjects in the areas of visual computing. Since 1992 when it was first established by Professor Min Chen (now Oxford) and Professor Peter Townsend (retired), the group has grown to a team of 9 academics (Dr Daniel Archambault, Professor Mark W Jones, Dr Robert S Laramee, Dr Chenfeng Li (Engineering), Dr Ben Mora, Dr Adeline Paiement, Dr Gary Tam, Dr Sean Walton, Dr Xianghua (Jason) Xie), 12 researchers and 12 PhD/MPhil/MRes.
The group has contributed a large collection of novel techniques and significant breakthroughs in the fields of Data Visualization, Computer Vision, Data Mining, Data Science, Computer Graphics and Interaction.
The group follows an ambitious and curiosity driven programme to develop new algorithms and methods, as well as advanced software techniques and tools, for computer graphics, visualization and interactive systems. It has a number of on-going collaborative research projects with scientists from around the world, and is actively involved in knowledge transfer and industrial applications.
