Chunhua Shen

I am an ARC Future Fellow (awarded in 2012) and Professor at School of Computer Science, University of Adelaide; also a member of the Australian Centre for Visual Technologies (ACVT). My research and teaching focus on Statistical Machine Learning and Computer Vision.

I did the PhD study at Adelaide; then I worked at the NICTA (formerly 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 Adelaide in 2011 as a Senior Lecturer.

A formal, brief biography

Chunhua Shen is a Professor at School of Computer Science, University of Adelaide. He is a Project Leader and Chief Investigator at the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Robotic Vision. Before he moved to Adelaide as a Senior Lecturer, he was with the computer vision program at NICTA (National ICT Australia), Canberra Research Laboratory for about six years. His research interests are in the intersection of computer vision and statistical machine learning. Recent work has been on real-time object detection, large-scale image retrieval and classification, and scalable nonlinear optimization.
He studied at Nanjing University, at Australian National University, and received his PhD degree from the University of Adelaide. From 2012 to 2016, he holds an Australian Research Council Future Fellowship.

Recruiting graduate students

I am actively recruiting PhD candidates. Applications should come through the University application system. Scholarships are available. For overseas students, you need to have either TOEFL or IELTS results that meet the University's minimum requirement.
For students from China: University of Adelaide and the China Scholarship Council (CSC) have entered a collaborative arrangement to provide research opportunities to select high quality research students from China. Students selected as CSC scholarship recipients will be able to enrol in a University of Adelaide PhD program and undertake full-time study for up to four years.
