Richard Wilson's Homepage

Richard Wilson I am a Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of York. I lead the Department of Computer Science's research themes on Beyond Human Vision and Analytics I completed a BA in Physics from St. John's College, Oxford in 1992 and a PhD in computer vision from the University of York in 1996. I have published more than 150 papers in international journals and conferences. According to Google Scholar, my work has been cited more than 4000 times and I have an h-index of 33.

My research interests are wide-reaching but mainly involve the areas of computer vision and pattern recognition, particularly problems involving graphs and networks. I have worked on Bayesian methods for graph matching and the development of spectral techniques for structural pattern recognition, developing new feature sets for describing graphs and networks. I have also published research in the fields of quantum computing, shape-from-shading, speech recognition and protein matching.

I was a member of the British Physics Olympiad team in 1988, won the K. M. Stott prize for best thesis from the University of York in 1995 and was a member of the winning team in the 1996 BCS programming competition. I was also an EPSRC advanced research fellow from 1998-2003. I am a fellow of the IAPR and a Senior Member of IEEE.
