I am visiting the UNSW School of Computer Science and Engineering.

I have a Masters of Engineering Science in Remote Sensing from this University and a Bachelor of Science with Honours in Physics from the University of Western Australia

My Masters Degree thesis "Digital Processing of Solar Images" (Abstract) convincingly demonstrates a wide range of image processing techniques for processing solar H-alpha and white light images.

Current doctoral research, in Computer Science includes computational and forensic linguistics, vocal analysis and the dynamics of micro-facial expression.
