Professor of Analytical Pathology.
Welcome to my personal homepage at the Oral Pathology Unit,
School of Dentistry, University of Birmingham, England, U.K.
My research interests are Digital Image Processing and Analysis and Fractal Geometry applied to biomedical problems.
Some areas in which I have applied fractal principles to gather information on morphological complexity include:
In the area of Image Processing and Analysis I am interested in:
- Quantification of tumour shape,
- Solid tissue cell neighbourhoods,
- Cell and nuclear pleomorphism in squamous cell carcinomas,
- Computer modelling (periodontal breakdown, organogenesis, tumorigenesis),
- Analysis and modelling of parenchyma organisation (mosaic patterns) in chimaeric animals,
- Analysis of retinal angiography,
- Analysis and modelling of Herpes Simplex virus spread in epithelium,
- Three dimensional structure of trabecular bone,
- Image segmentation in histopathology,
- Quantitative measures of tissue architecture,
- Autofocus, depth from focus and interframe focusing,
- Complex data characterisation and visualisation.
The undergraduate e-course resources on the Dental Pathology and Oral Immunology course (Years 2 and 3) are here (requires authentication).
The undergraduate e-course resources on the Oral Pathology course (Year 4) are here (requires authentication).
We have PhD studentship opportunities available in some of the areas outlined above. Please follow this link.
Here is my list of publications.
If you use ImageJ or Fiji image analysis software,
you might be interested in some macros and plugins I have written.
Or, perhaps nothing interests you, so here it is.
