Research Student Projects

We are always looking for research students (Honours, Master, PhD) to join our team. Below is a list of potential projects. A lot of what drives our group is the basic notion that HCI systems of the future will sense the human user, the user’s state and adapt to it (in whatever way is useful and suitable for a particular application). In particular, the young field of affective computing and its interaction with HCI is an area of research focus and future direction.

Along the way, we need to solve quite a number of problems, be it in computer vision, signal processing, affective computing, bio-engineering, speech processing or others. The aspect of multimodal, multi-sensor systems also plays a central role, where the multiplicity leads to more accuracte and more robust systems, capable of being used in real-world applications, that outperform single modality, single sensor systems.

The following list is in no particular order. The topics are not set in stone and it is certainly possible to combine parts of different topics listed here to form a new project.

  1. Affective Computing: An objective measure of depressive disorders More…
  2. Affective Sensing, Multimodal HCI: Sensing the user’s state More…
  3. Computer Vision: Face and facial feature tracking in 3D More…
  4. Computer Vision, Biometrics: Pose, illumination and expression invariant face recognition More…
  5. Image Processing: Image enhancement and image completion / inpainting More…
  6. Computer Vision: Human body tracking for team sport analysis More…
  7. Computer Vision: Video synopsis More…
