About Me

I am a Professor of Computer Vision and Machine Learning and Distinguished Chair at Centre for Vision Speech and Signal Processing (CVSSP) , University of Surrey. I am also a Principal Scientist at Samsung AI Centre, Cambridge, UK where I lead the Multimodal User Interaction Programme. Before joining University of Surrey, I was Professor of Computer Vision and Multimedia in School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science, Queen Mary and Westfield College, University of London. I was awarded the Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the National University of Singapore in 2002. I also received the BSc degree in Electrical Engineering from Xi'an Jiaotong University in 1995, and the MSc degree in Electronic Engineering from Communication University of China in 1998. My research in computer vision has focused on video surveillance, daily activity analysis, and sketch analysis. I also have interests in large-scale machine learning problems including zero/few-shot learning and domain adaptation. I have published over 180 papers with 16K citations (h-index 67). I serve as an area chair for ICCV'17 and ECCV'20.
