My main research interests are in computer graphics, particularly procedural modelling of natural objects (e.g., terrains, plants, etc.) I recently completed IViPP
, a scientific visualization project in particle physics. I am currently looking at whether the structure of assemblies of crystals is amenable to procedural modelling. Other interests include the role of mathematics in computer science, and programming languages and methods.
