Research Interests
Contact Details
My research interests are in the areas of Pattern Recognition, Computer Vision, Spectral Imaging and Image Processing. Along these lines, I am the leading researcher for Scyllarus. I have done work on segmentation and grouping, tracking, graph-matching and shape analysis. My work has found application in the recovery of the 3D structure of an object from single and multiple views, the recovery of the BRDF from single images, content-based image database indexing and retrieval and maging spectroscopy.

At present, I am working on projects in the areas of environmental management, biosecurity, biometrics, forensics and surveillance systems.
Brief Vitae
I received my B.Eng. degree in Electronics and Telecommunications from the Inst. Tecnologico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey (ITESM) with honours in 1998. In 1999, after a year in industry, I enrolled in a PhD programme at the University of York. In 2001, being a graduate student, I received the Gibbs/Plessey Award to the best research proposal to visit an overseas research lab. 

I completed my PhD in Computer Science in 2003. After receiving my doctorate, I remained in York until Dec. 2004 as a Research Associate under the MathFit-EPSRC framework. In 2005 I moved to Australia and took a research scientist appointment with National ICT Australia (NICTA) at the Canberra Laboratory. Together with this appointment, I became an adjunct academic at the ANU. In 2006 I was appointed the project leader of the Imaging Spectroscopy team at NICTA. 
From 2007 to 2009, I was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow of the Australian Research Council. In 2016, I became a Principal Researcher of the CSIRO (Data61). I am the president of the Australian Pattern Recognition Society (APRS), an associate editor of the Pattern Recognition Journal, the IET Computer Vision Journal and an Adjunct Associate Professor at the ANU. I have been a technical committee member of mainstream computer vision and pattern recognition conferences such as BMVC, ICCV, CVPR, ECCV, ACCV and ICPR. I have also been area chair of DICTA, ACCV, ICPR and BMVC, exhibits and demo chair of ICCV and the general chair of DICTA 2008 and S+SSPR 2016.
