Biography

I received B.Eng. (Hon.) degree in Computer Science from Xidian University, China, in 2006, and Ph.D degree in School of Computer Engineering from Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore, in 2012. Before starting Ph.D in NTU, I studied in Zhejiang University during 2006-2008. I am currently a Research Fellow of the Centre for Intelligent Systems Research (CISR) at Deakin University in Australia.

Research Projects

  • Detecting Road Regions in a Single UAV Image
               Aerial images datasets download

  • Lung disease detection in CT images
lung_segmentation



A robust approach for automatic lung segmentation in CT images






  • Road detection and tracking for UAV

An efficient road detection and tracking framework is developed, which real-time localizes road areas in aerial videos. 
Our approach can achieve 0.032 seconds per frame.
Dataset consisting of UAV images, road groundtruth, and video results can be downloaded from the following link:

  • Towards object-based editing
         



An advanced image editing framework is designed. 
We can achieve fast and accurately create, compose, render and manipulate image contents.
Techniques image segmentation, vectorization, and completion of shape and colours are developed to support the framework.

The code for "Euler arc spline for shape completion" is now available. You can email to hailing.zhou@hotmail.com for more details.
