Research

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

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 supervision of Alex J. Smola (primary advisor, Now in CMU, Marianas Labs and Amazon), Jack Yu (Now in Bocom), 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 supervision of Yanning Zhang.
