I am curently an Associate Professor of Big data/computer science at Institute of Natural and Mathematical Sciences (INMS), Massey University (Albany Campus), New Zealand. Before joining Massey University, I worked at University of Pennsylvania (UPenn) and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-CH) after received my PhD degree in computer science from The University of Queensland (UQ), Australia. My research interests include data preprocessing, machine learning, and image analysis. Specifically, I am focusing on mining useful knowledge or information from big data and analysing medical images using machine learning techniques.

I am looking for postgraduate students (fully-funded scholarships for PhD students) in machine learning and image analysis at Massey University Albany Campus, Auckland, New Zealand. If you are familiar with any of the following areas e.g., computer science, mathematics, information technology, data science, bioinformatics, and so on, please feel free to contact me or send me your CV.

The postgraduate students with self-funded finance and government scholarship (e.g.,
China Scholarship Council PhD Scholarship for Chinese Students) and visiting scholars/students are always welcome.
