Prof. David Marshall has been working in the field of computer vision since 1986. David obtained a B.Sc. degree in mathematics from University College, Cardiff in 1986 and then undertook a Ph.D. in three dimensional inspection of manufactured objects at Cardiff University, working in collaboration with the Sowerby Research Centre, British Aerospace. In 1989 he joined Cardiff University as lecturer and is now Professor of Computer Vision in the School of Computer Science and Informatics. David's research interests include articulated modelling of human faces, models of human motion, statistical modelling, high dimensional subspace analysis, audio/video image processing, and data/sensor fusion. He has published over 150 papers and one book in these research areas and has attracted over £4M in research funding over his academic career. David enjoys close collaboration with national and international external bodies (incl. British Aerospace, EADS, General Dynamics, QinetiQ, Museum of Natural Sciences, Madrid, Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh,DSTO Australia, Free University Brussels) and has good inter-disciplinary research links within the University (incl. Schools of Psychology, Engineering, Dentistry and Optometry). He is currently director of the Human Factors Technology Centre an interdisciplinary research centre between the Schools of Engineering, Psychology and Computer Science, and director of teaching and postgraduate student research in the School of Computer Science and Informatics.
