Prof Alan Penn

Alan Penn is Professor of Architectural and Urban Computing
at The Bartlett School of Graduate Studies and Director of the
VR Centre for the Built Environment. He is Dean of the Bartlett.
His research focuses on understanding the way that the design of
the built environment affects the patterns of social and economic
behaviour of organisations and communities. How is it that
architecture and urban design matter for those that inhabit
them? How is it that the spatial design of cities and neighbourhoods
leads to the generation of cultural and community identity?
Under what conditions do vital and thriving creative communities occur,
and under what conditions does crime and urban malaise develop?

steed2Prof Anthony Steed's research is concerned with real-time interactive graphics systems such as immersive virtual reality, mixed reality systems and video games. He in interested in a range of topics from systems engineering, system latency, efficient rendering, 3D interfaces, content creation, usability evaluation, bio-signal monitoring and the general human response to interactive content. In the past couple of years he has focussed particularly on networked graphics and telepresence systems. He is also interested in procedural graphics and computer animation for humans. Prof Steed is interested in working with companies that wan to develop and evaulate new interactive systems and novel displays. He has experience working in the games industry and is also interested in content production pipelines and user-generated content.

Dr Niloy Mitra

Dr Niloy Mitra'a work deals with shape analysis and exploiting 3D data
collections. Humans possess superior reasoning and observation skills
and are experts in quickly parsing and abstracting scenes. Yet with the
huge amount of digital data now being easily available, automation is
desirable. A common theme of Niloy's research is to understand the
important relations between objects and object parts in 3D scenes.
Niloy is also working on the identify and encode model variations
across collections of similar datasets using statistical techniques.
3D geometry is widely available via online repositories, yet we lack
effective tools for browsing and navigating such datasets, e.g.,
understanding geometric optimization and manufacturing constraints to
better navigate the space of constrained meshes. Niloy's research
opens up interesting directions in fabrication-aware design and
exploration, and optimizing directly on such design manifolds.
