Dr. Orchard's research interests centre on complex systems, and the emergence of order. He directs this interest to the study of living systems, with a particular interest in the theory of evolution, and cognitive neuroscience. His current research thrust is to understand the brain by studying neural networks and their associated learning algorithms.
He has also done research in the area of image processing and medical imaging, where he has published a number of papers on image registration, image reconstruction for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT), denoising, image mosaicking, and forensic image processing.
