Mr Warren Viant

Biography Over 20 years of research experience and numerous publications in simulation and modelling within computer systems. Research spans parallel programming and dependable systems research at British Aerospace; 2D/3D simulation, modelling and virtual/augmented/mixed reality at the University of Hull. Previous computer-assisted medical systems research encompassed accurate tracking of objects across the cluttered and dynamic environment of an operating theatre, simulation and modelling of both x-ray based imagery, and 2D/3D simulations for medical systems.

Returned to full-time research in 2015, following 3 successive terms as Head of Computer Science. Research now focuses on parallel simulations on the CPU and GPU. Was also the originator of the VIC project, a Virtual Incident Command training system for the FRS incident commanders.
