The parametric video coding framework, which he developed during my PhD, offers world leading compression results based on the use of texture analysis and synthesis, exploiting techniques from computer graphics, and provides immense potential for further improvement in rate-quality optimisation and residual compression. It still remains one of the best compression algorithms of its type.

Aaron is currently working as a Research Associate (2012-present) in the Visual ...
