Chunhua Shen (沈春華)

I am a Professor of Computer Science at University of Adelaide, leading the Machine Learning Group.

I held an ARC Future Fellowship from 2012 to 2016. My research and teaching have been focusing on Statistical Machine Learning and Computer Vision.

These days my team spend most effort on Deep Learning. In particular, with tools from deep learning, my research contributes to understand the visual world around us by exploiting the large amounts of imaging data.

I received a PhD degree at University of Adelaide; then worked at the NICTA (National ICT Australia) computer vision program for about six years. From 2006 to 2011, I held an adjunct position at College of Engineering & Computer Science, Australian National University. I moved back to University of Adelaide in 2011.
