  • I received my PhD in computer vision and pattern recognition from the Centre for Vision, Speech and Signal Processing (CVSSP), University of Surrey in 2016. I am currently a research fellow working on the EPSRC FACER2VM (Face Matching for Automatic Identity Retrieval, Recognition, Verification and Management) project at CVSSP, University of Surrey, UK.
  • My research interests include computer vision, machine learning and pattern recognition. I have worked on face recognition and facial image analysis since 2008. My early-stage research is to achieve robust facial landmark detection, using Active Shape Models (ASM), Active Appearance Models (AAM) and their extensions. Now I am focusing on machine-learning-based approaches, such as cascaded shape regression and deep neural networks. My aim is to develop fully automatic face recognition and analysis systems for faces in the wild.
  • I serve as invited reviewer for a number of international top journals and conferences, such as IEEE Trans. on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence, International Journal of Computer Vision, IEEE Trans. on Signal Processing, IEEE Trans. on Multimedia, IEEE Signal Processing Letters, Information Sciences, Pattern Recognition, Pattern Recognition Letters, IET Electronics Letters, IET Image Processing etc.
