All of our academic staff are research active, working with a team of post-graduate and post-doctoral researchers and a lively population of research students. Our research focuses on core themes of theoretical and practical computer science: artificial intelligence and symbolic computation, networked and distributed systems, systems engineering, and human computer interaction.

  • Aptamer-conjugated, fluorescent gold nanorods as potential cancer theradiagnostic agents 

    Gallina, Maria Elena; Zhou, Yu; Johnson, Christopher J; Harris-Birtill, David; Singh, Mohan; Zhao, Hailin; Ma, Daqing; Cass, Tony; Elson, Daniel S (2016-02-01) - Journal article
    GNRs are emerging as a new class of probes for theradiagnostic applications thanks to their unique optical properties. However, the achievement of proper nanoconstructs requires the synthesis of highly pure GNRs with ...
  • Linking data, services and human know-how 

    Pareti, Paolo; Klein, Ewan; Barker, Adam David (Springer, 2016) - Conference item
    An increasing number of everyday tasks involve a mixture of human actions and machine computation. This paper presents the first framework that allows non-programmer users to create and execute workflows where each task ...
  • Investigating tilt-based gesture keyboard entry for single-handed text entry on large devices 

    Yeo, Hui Shyong; Phang, Xiao-Shen; Castellucci, Steven J.; Kristensson, Per Ola; Quigley, Aaron John (ACM, 2017-05-02) - Conference item
    The popularity of mobile devices with large screens is making single-handed interaction difficult. We propose and evaluate a novel design point around a tilt-based text entry technique which supports single handed usage. ...
