Biography: I am a postdoctoral researcher in Multimedia and Vision (MMV) Research Group, which is part of School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) of Queen Mary University of London (QMUL). I work with Dr. Ioannis (Yiannis) Patras. I received my Ph.D. degree from Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) under supervision of Dr. Woontack Woo.


Research Group: Multimedia and Vision Research Group

Line Manager: Dr. Ioannis Patras

Research Interests: I develop novel natural user interface technologies that aim to make interactions between humans and computers more intuitive in a wearable AR/VR environment. These efforts often lie in understanding human behaviours, understanding scene and identifying persons based on gesture interaction, mobile & wearable computing, and visual computing. Besides my research background in computer science, my work often incorporates aspects of machine learning (particularly Random Forest), augmented reality & virtual reality, computer vision, video processing (including IR, colour, and depth images), and biometrics.

Topics include human behaviour analysis, hand gesture recognition, AR/VR object selection & manipulation, object recognition in a video, and person re-identification (via iris, finger vein, and face images).
