Stephen was appointed as a Lecturer in January 2005 and is part of the Graphics, Vision and Speech Lab.

He was promoted to Senior Lecturer in August 2012.

Stephen's research interests include Haptic Rendering, Collision Detection, Deformable objects and Real-time rendering. He is also interested in the application of new graphics techniques to Cultural Heritage, scientific visualisation  and virtual training simulations. His research into haptic rendering led to a book chapter on the subject included in the book titled "Haptic Rendering: Foundations, Algorithms and Applications" edited by Ming Lin and Miguel Otaduy. His research in this area continues with the development of novel haptic rendering algorithms suitable for Molecular Graphics. Software based on these algorithms is available for download from The latest features of HaptiMOL ISAS are shown in the video. For more details on his research and publications please click on the research box above.
