I am a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) at the Department of Computer Science, University of Liverpool.
My research interests include Computer Vision (e.g., robotic vision, image-based localization, large scale visual search, visual question answering) and Machine Learning (e.g., deep learning, sparse coding, learning to hash). Please check my personal webpage
for more detail on my research and publications.
Potential applicants who are interested in my research areas are welcome to join my group. Self-funded PhD students and Master students are welcome. The candidates can also check this link for postgraduate research scholarships at the University of Liverpool, including country specific scholarships like Liverpool-CSC scholarships. Please feel free to contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more details.
Current open positions: We currently have a fully funded PhD position related to topics of clustering and classification in a dynamic context. The project description can be found at this link. Due to the constraint on the funding, this position is only open to European/UK students. The deadline for application is May 03, 2019.
