Professor David Duce
School of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics
Now formally retired, continuing some research activities with the department and externally and contributions to professional bodies.
Historically computer graphics, formal methods in software development, and web technologies. Currently, information visualization.
Recent activities have included developing some visualizations and animations for use in teaching in liturgical studies with a collaborator at Church House, Oxford, and work on the archive of the animator, Tony Pritchett, who died in 2017. This might be loosely termed software archaeology and is joint work with retired Professor Bob Hopgood, animator Kate Sullivan and Dr Victoria Marshall at STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory. Work so far has uncovered the program Tony used in creating the animated short film, The Flexipede in 1967, probably the first known character computer animation telling a story worldwide, certainly in the UK. And it had a soundtrack. The animation has been recreated from this using modern web technologies.
Professor Duce also contributed to usability, visualization and interface definition aspects of the EU Horizon 2020 funded project, PEPPER, Patient Empowerment through Predictive PERsonalised decision support (http://pepper.eu.com/) for which Oxford Brookes University was the Project Coordinator. The project terminated in May 2020.
