I joined School of Information and Communication Technology at Griffith University in June 2012. Before this appointment, I had been a research fellow in the Research School of Computer Science, at the Australian National University, 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. Currently, I am a Deputy Director of ARC Research Hub for Driving Farming Productivity and Disease Prevention,

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, and 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


My main research area is hyperspectral imaging for computer vision and remote sensing, which covers the following topics:

  • Hypespecral image preprocessing
  • Hyperspectral image visualization
  • Spectral-spatial feature extraction
  • Hyperspectral unmixing
  • Hyperspectral object detection and classification
  • 3D modelling and depth estimation
  • Multi-modal image fusion
  • Applications in environmental monitoring, agriculture, and medicine
