PhD Candidate (2011-2014)
Faculty of Information Science and Engineering
University of Canberra
I am a PhD candidate at the Faculty of Information Science and Engineering, University of Canberra (Canberra, Australia) under the supervision of A/Prof. Roland Goecke and Prof. Michael Wagner. My research is mainly supported by the W J Weeden scholarship (2011-2014).
My current research focuses on the problems that lie at the intersection of computer vision, pattern recognition, multimedia, video retrieval and machine learning with a main focus on statistical methods for recognizing human actions and estimating human body pose. I am interested in (but not limited to):
- Human action recognition
- Human pose estimation
- 3D pose reconstruction
- Human motion tracking
- Action detection in crowds
- Multiple object tracking
- Multimedia and video retrieval
- Face and facial feature analysis.
- Automatic head pose estimation.
- Fully automatic systems for affective
- Video Surveillance
- Multimodal Human-Computer Interaction.
I am also interested in Markerless human body tracking and gesture recognition.
While my research (so far) has given me a good insight into the vision and learning methods for human action and pose estimation, and there is still a lot to learn. I am also interested in exploring the rapidly growing field of multimedia and video retrieval. Apart from the human pose and action recognition related applications, such as video search by pose or search by action category in video or still images.
