I am an associate professor in the computer science department at Boston College. I received PhD in computer science from Simon Fraser University in 2006. I was a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of British Columbia and an associate researcher at Microsoft Research Asia.

Research Interests

My research interests are in computer vision with the focus on image matching, object detection, tracking, pose and action recognition. I am also interested in multimedia, graphics, and machine learning. Please see my list of publications for more details.

News

We am looking for talented researchers to join our team as a computer vision Postdoctoral Research Fellow. Candidates with different focused fields in computer vision will be considered. The background on human tracking, pose estimation, action recognition, convex optimization, discrete optimization and machine learning is preferred. If you are interested, please email me your CV that contains a complete publication list.
