Dr Adrian N. Evans

Academic background:

A Brief History.....

I have been at the University of Bath since September 1997 and have been Head of Department since April 2013. Prior to this I was an Assistant Lecturer and then Lecturer in the Department of Production Technology, Massey University New Zealand. I claim no responsibility for the disbandment of this Department just a few months after my departure, the remains of which was institutionalised to form the Institute of Information Sciences and Technology. Stepping back in time, after completing my PhD in ultrasound imaging techniques in the School of Electronics & Computer Science at Southampton, I spent a short period of time in the Relaxation Research Group at York working on hedge detection and matching in synthetic aperture radar. My research is focussed on digital image processing and computer vision, including the development of fundamental techniques in addition to application areas such as remote sensing and biometrics. Current research interests in which PhD projects are available include:

  • 3D face recognition
  • texture analysis and tracking in remotely sensed images
  • mathematical morphology techniques for colour and multispectral image analysis

Further details on recent projects are provide below, see also my PURE Research profile for publications, grants etc


Current Research interests:

  • Biometrics: recognising people by the 3D shape of their faces.
  • Colour and Multispectral Image Processing: colour edge detection; nonlinear filtering; colour image noise reduction and segmentation using scale-space sieves.
  • Motion Estimation: motion estimation and analysis of non-rigid bodies (clouds, glaciers etc), object-based motion.
  • Nonlinear Image Processing: mathematical morphological sieves, granulometric texture analysis, multivariate morphology.
  • Application Areas: remote sensing, surveillance, medical imaging and video coding.
