About me

I am a senior lecturer in the department of Electrical and Computer Systems Eng. (ECSE) at Monash University. I am also a contributing research scientist at the Machine Learning Research Group (MLRG) Data61-CSIRO and an associated investigator at Australian Center for Robotic Vision (ACRV).

Before joining Monash University, I spent 5 wonderful years at Canberra Research Laboratory-NICTA, working with prof. Richard Hartley and prof. Fatih Porikli. Prior to that, I worked at Queensland Research Laboratory-NICTA with Prof. Brian Lovell.

I am interested in various aspects of learning, especially with a flavor of visual data (see my google scholar page).

I always look for motivated and hard-working students who are interested in doing research with me. You can read some of my papers (click here) to get a feel for the type of work that I do. I encourage students to contact me but 

You must have good mathematical and computational skills, preferably with prior experience in machine learning and/or computer vision. Strong programming skills in Matlab and Python are also necessary. When contacting me, include a copy of your academic transcripts.
