I joined School of Information and Communication Technology in Griffith University in June 2012. At the same time, I hold an adjunct visiting fellow position from the Research School of Computer Science (RSCS), in the Australian National University (ANU). Before joining Griffith, I had been a research fellow in RSCS, ANU and a researcher in the Canberra research lab of NICTA. I had also held an adjunct position in the School of Engineering and Information Technology at the University of New South Wales.

I completed my PhD studies in Computing Science at the University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada in 2006. From 1999 to 2002, I studied in the Department of Computer Science, Concordia University, Montreal,Canada. I also worked in the Centre for Pattern Recognition and Machine Intelligence (CENPARMI) as a research assistant and technical staff. I got my bachelor's degree from Nanjing University of Science and Technology, Nanjing, China

I was a winner of the Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA) from the Australian Research Council in 2011. This award supports a project titled "Interactive computer vision for image annotation", with $375,000 for three years from 2012 to 2015. This project focuses on developing a framework that allows the computer vision system learn from human in an image interpretation environment, and gradually optimizes its performance until the desired outcomes are achieved. The research topics in this project include:

  • Object detection by visual perception modelling
  • Behavior goal and its guidance to scene structure modelling
  • Adaptive learning from human input and conceptual changes
  • Novel applications

    Another main research area of mine is hyperspectral imaging for computer vision and remote sensing with applications to environmental informatics. The research topics include:

  • Multi-modal image registration
  • Spectral-spatial feature extraction
  • Hyperspectral unmixing
  • Hyperspectral object detection and classification
  • I am actively seeking exellent PhD students. If you are interested in the topics of my research, and would like to pursue further study under my supervision, please do not hesitate to contact me. I also accept visiting scholars/students, Master's students, and honour students. Students who are supported by or are considering applying for the funding from the Chinese Scholarship Council are welcome to contact me.
