Professor Stephen Cameron

Associate Professor in Computer Science

Tutorial Fellow in Computer Science

Welcome

Keble is one of the most popular colleges for computing in Oxford.  I'm partially responsible for the teaching of Computer Science within our 3 undergraduate degrees, namely Computer Science itself and the joint degree with Mathematics. I also act as College advisor for our many graduate students in this area.

Research Interests

My research focuses on a field called spatial reasoning, which is the study of problems whose solution depends critically on the geometry of objects. Examples include: the control of robot manipulators and vehicles; the simulation of manufacturing processes; and the construction of virtual worlds for feature films and computer games.

Recently we've been working with a number of small robotics devices, such as helicopters and for the RoboCup competitions. For more details see my departmental web page.
