I started my research career with an interest in computer graphics and image processing. During my PhD studies I looked at applications of differential geometry in polygonal mesh processing and then moved towards computer vision, specifically 3D reconstruction with applications in face recognition, where I investigated and developed real-time, short range structured light scanning solutions. When I joined the Vision and Learning research group at Stellenbosch my focus shifted slightly to the application of machine learning principles in computer vision, yet I still have a strong interest in multi-view geometry. Further ongoing work includes multiple target tracking for surveillance applications, and a collaboration with the Electronic Systems Lab where we develop computer vision techniques for autonomous navigation.
Here is a list of some of the research projects that I am or have been involved with. I am in the process of creating a project page for each, with more detailed information, so please check back soon.
