Research interests
My primary research focuses on multi-resolution representation and vector quantization techniques to compress microscopic images, especially volumetric images collected from imaging systems with three-dimensional imaging functionality like CLSM (confocal laser scanning microscopy). My research interests include vector quantization, image compression, multi-resolution analysis and microscopic imaging. My academic supervisor is W. Paul Cockshott.

i'm not a mania but addicted by music. One guitar, one keyboard and a computer are enough for me to spend a whole day to please myself in this studio and to make a voice of myself :-)
latest download
There are two big Chinese students associations in Glasgow - one is GCSSA (Glasgow Chinese Students and Scholors Association) and another is GUCS (Univ. of Glasgow Chinese Society). Apart from organizing various activities like sports and tours, they offer plenty of information for Chinese studuents in Glasgow, expecially for newcomers.
