About Me

I am an Associate Professor in Computer Science at Durham University. Before this, I worked as the Director of Research/Associate Professor/Senior Lecturer at Northumbria University, a Postdoctoral Researcher at RIKEN Japan, and a Research Assistant at the City University of Hong Kong. I received my PhD degree from the University of Edinburgh, my Master and Bachelor degrees from the City University of Hong Kong. To develop my research team, I led funded research projects as the Principal Investigator awarded by EPSRC, the Ministry of Defence (DASA) and the Royal Society. This facilitated me to supervise more than 20 PhDs, to recruit multiple Post-doctoral Researchers, and to collaborate with international researchers from the UK, China, France, Japan and India. Together, we published over 100 research papers in the fields of computer graphics, computer vision, motion analysis and machine learning, particularly focusing on the modelling of human-related data. I led my team hosting important conferences such as BMVC and ACM SIGGRAPH Conference on MIG to engage the academic and industry networks. Contributing to the research community, I have served as an Associate Editor for Computer Graphics Forum, a Guest Editor for International Journal of Computer Vision, and a Program Committee member in 15 conferences such as CVPREurographicsPacific Graphics.

Working with Me

If you aspire to develop yourself and to conduct high-quality research, do explore working with me as a PhD student, a visiting/internship student, or an academic visitor. My team has a supportive culture with members coming from different countries. My past students and researchers have developed successful research and have enjoyed their vibrant lifes in the UK.
