I am a Research Associate at the School of Computer Science at The University of Adelaide and Research Affiliate in the ARC Centre of Excellence for Robotic Vision.
I am interested in robust geometric algorithms and optimisation methods in computer vision for problems such as localisation, SLAM, and structure from motion.
I am also particularly interested in problems involving rotations, e.g., rotation search and rotation averaging. During my PhD, I focused on solving rotation search on difficult input data. These are the cases when only a small portion of the input can be rotationally aligned, i.e., the inlier ratio or the percentage of overlap is low. Such challenging data occurs frequently in real-life applications, e.g., surveying, mining, construction, and robotics.
