Personal profile


Research Professor

Roles and responsibilities

I am an Australian Research Fellow. My full focus is on research and supervising PhD students.

Future research

Multispectral/Hyperspectral Image Analysis.

Funding overview

I have received four ARC Discovery Grants amounting to $2.0 Million.

Current projects

1. Active Multispectral Computer Vision
2. Video-based face and iris recognition
3. Automatic fish measurement and identification in underwater stereo video
4. 3D face analysis for medical applications

Teaching overview

I have taught Computer Graphics and Java Programming in the past. Currently, I am not teaching in order to focus fully on my research.
