Research

Machine Learning, Compressive Sensing, and Computer Vision.
Particularly Structured Learning, Probabilistic Graphical Models, PAC-Bayes Bounds Analysis, and Probability Ineqaulities.

Structured estimation often involves exponential many possible labels or configurations. How to efficiently infer and learn such models remain a challenging and fun task. Assessing the performance in theory is a joy.

Biography

I am a Senior Lecturer at the School of Computer Science, The University of Adelaide. I am also with The Australian Centre for Visual Technologies. I was an ARC Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA) Fellow between 2012-2014 (awarded in 2011). I received a PhD in computer science in 2011 at The Australian National University (ANU) in Machine Learning. At ANU, I was under the supervison of Alex J. Smola (primary advisor, Now in CMU and Marianas Labs), S. V. N. Vishwanathan (Now in UCSC), Li Cheng (Now in A-Star), Tiberio Caetano (principle advisor, ANU and NICTA), Richard Hartley (Panel, ANU and NICTA). Before that, I completed Bachelor and Master study in computer science and Technology in 2003 and 2006 at The Northwestern Polytechnical University (NPU) under the supervison of Yanning Zhang.
