I am a lecturer in Computing at Goldsmiths, University of London. My main research interests are on animated virtualcharacters and particularly expressive body language. This broad area covers many aspects, including animation, AI and the simulation of behaviour, motion capture and the analysis of body movement. My most recent work has centred on Data Driven Methods for creating responsive virtual characters. See my research page for more details of my work. I teach on two main courses, PIAVCA an open source character animation engine
