My Thesis is entitled Real-time Procedural Animation for the Upper Limb. In it I describe methods and algorithms for generating realistic motion for the upper limb in real time, and specifically target deaf signing avatars.

Related areas of study include inverse kinematics, the simulation of physical systems using rigid body dynamics, control theory, and the neuromuscular system. I'm also interested in computer graphics, particularly level of detail, subdivision surfaces and shadow algorithms.
