Sean Gong is Professor of Visual Computation at Queen Mary
of University London and a Turing Fellow of the Alan Turing Institute of Data Science and Artificial Intelligence. He established the Queen Mary Computer Vision Laboratory in 1993 and has enjoyed immensely working with PhD students and postdoctoral researchers. His research is in Computer Vision and Machine Learning (Google Scholar, DBLP, Research.com), with a focus on Object Recognition, Action Recognition, and Video Analysis. His brief bio, publications with pdf download, and guide to PhD study. Two new PhD studentships available starting in September 2023, please apply NOW - more details below. Please email me if you are interested in finding out more.
A new 2023 PhD studentship (4 years) on "Self Learning for Object Recognition" starting in September 2023, invite applications now; open to CSC scholarship applicants.
A new 2023 PhD studentship (3.5 years) on "Fine-Grained Unsupervised Domain Adaptation", starting in September 2023, invite applications now; open to home, EU and international students. We especially encourage UK home student applications. This is an EPSRC funded studentship and due to the number of non-UK students being capped by the EPSRC, the competition for non-UK candidates is particularly strong.
