Areas of Research Interest

Data Mining, Mobile Development

Modeling of Tensiographic data

This project which was funded by the European Framework FP7 and now supported by both CarlStuart Ltd, Ireland and Ocean Optics, US, aimed at developing a computer model of the physics of pendant drops and the reflection/refraction of light inside a drop to form Tensiotraces. The research set the theoretical platform for the engineering of the second generation of the multianalyser instrument and future development of the TLDA instruments.
