New Wepages

These pages are very old, and quite out of date. While they will be around for a while, you should update your links to our new pages. The new pages contain much more accurate information about the lab, our work, and our people.

Important Notice about Internships

If you are interested in possibilities to do research with us, please read this first.


The graphics and vision research laboratory was formed in 1986 by Professor Geoff Wyvill and today consists of 4 academic staff: Geoff Wyvill, Chris Handley, Brendan McCane, Nathan Rountree, several postgraduate and visiting students and 4th year project students. The lab is a fun place to work and hang out - and our work mostly consists of doing fun stuff.

In recent years, we have attracted two large Marsden grants to develop a major project, the Watching Window, which has been a feature display at several conferences and national and local exhibitions. Our research interests include: computer animation/modeling, virtual sculpting, noise, texture modeling and synthesis, face, eye and hand detection and tracking, medical imaging, estimation and modeling, and pitch detection.
