Biography

I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow on the V-Sense research project, working with Professor Aljosa Smolic in Trinity College Dublin. I am also a member of the Graphics Vision and Visualization (GV2) group in the School of Computer Science and Statistics. I received my undergraduate degree in Pure Mathematics and Statistics from Maynooth University, and my masters degree in Interactive Entertainment Technology, from Trinity College Dublin. I also completed my PhD in Trinity College Dublin, in the areas of colour transfer and shape registration using functional data representations.

2D Shading for Cel Animation

In this paper we present a semi-automatic method for creating shades and self-shadows in cel animation. Besides producing attractive images, shades and shadows provide important visual cues about depth, shapes, ...

A Geometry-Sensitive Approach for Photographic Style Classification

Abstract Photographs are characterized by different compositional attributes like the Rule of Thirds, depth of field, vanishing-lines etc. The presence or absence of one or more of these attributes contributes ...

AlphaGAN: Generative adversarial networks for natural image matting

Abstract We present the first generative adversarial network (GAN) for natural image matting. Our novel generator network is trained to predict visually appealing alphas with the addition of the adversarial ...

Colour Transfer using the L2 Metric

Overview Colour transfer is an important pre-processing step in many applications, including stereo vision, surface reconstruction and image stitching. It can also be applied to images and videos as a ...

User Interaction for Image Recolouring using L2

Recently, an example based colour transfer approach proposed modelling the colour distributions of a palette and target image using Gaussian Mixture Models, and registers them by minimising the robust L2 ...
