I am currently a Lecturer (a.k.a. Assistant Professor) at the School of Computer Science and Engineering, The University of New South Wales (UNSW Sydney), Australia. I am also an Adjunct Lecturer with the Australian Institute for Machine Learning (AIML) of The University of Adelaide. Previously, I was a Research Fellow at the Australian Institute for Machine Learning (AIML), a Principal Researcher at Centre for Augmented Reasoning (CAR), The University of Adelaide, working with Prof. Anton van den Hengel, Prof. Qinfeng (Javen) Shi and Prof. Chunhua Shen. I obtained my PhD and B.S. in computer science from Northwestern Polytechnical University in 2018 and 2012, advised by Prof. Yanning Zhang. During my PhD studies, I spent two years at The University of Adelaide, working with Javen and Anton.

I am recruiting PhD/MPhil/visiting students in computer vision and machine learning. Please feel free to drop me an email with your CV.

Research Interests

I have broad interests in machine learning and computer vision. My current major research topics are about:

  • low/high-level computer vision

  • deep/sparse modeling, optimization and learning, e.g.,
    - memory mechanism in deep learning
    - deep learning with sparsity
    - optimization + learning/sparsity

  • learning with low supervision, e.g.,
    - continual/unsupervised/semi-supervised/domain-adaptive learning

  • interdisciplinary problems
