Mashhuda GlencrossI am a lecturer in the Vision Imaging and Autonomous Systems (VIAS) group at Loughborough University. My research is motivated by a keen desire to create effective human-computer interfaces. This has led me to cultivate an interest in the ways in which human perception can be exploited to create compelling graphics and tactile interfaces. Towards this aim, my work has spanned a diverse range of areas including computational photography, 3D reconstruction/imaging, visual perception, real-time/massive-model rendering, collaborative virtual reality, haptic interaction, and physically based modelling. In addition to my current role at Loughborough University, I am also the director of research and development at Pismo Software in my spare time. Please note that Pismo Software is in no way associated or endorsed by Loughborough University. My projects page or the online version of my academic CV has further information about my work.

Prior to joining Loughborough University, I worked closely with incredibly talented designers of scalable multi-core Graphics Processor Units in the Media Processing Division at ARM in Cambridge. A particular challenge was targeting the low power and high performance demands of embedded devices capable of modern visual computing. Before joining ARM, I spent ten years as a postdoctoral researcher in the Advanced Interfaces Group at The University of Manchester. During this time, I worked closely with Prof. Roger Hubbold on projects supported by funding from the European Commission and UK-EPSRC. I also played a key role in establishing, together with my colleagues Martin Turner and Mary McDerby, the ACM SIGGRAPH University of Manchester Professional Chapter. I had the privilege to serve the Manchester graphics community as chairperson of this chapter, and also to serve the international graphics community as courses chair for the ACM SIGGRAPH 2009 conference. More recently, I have been on the ACM SIGGRAPH nominations committee and the ACM SIGGRAPH Professional and Student Chapters Committee for the past two years. I am currently serving on the ACM Europe Council.
