Chunhua Shen 沈春華

I am a Professor of Computer Science at University of Adelaide, leading the Statistical Machine Learning Group (Internal website) at School of Computer Science. I am part of the Australian Institute for Machine Learning.

I held an ARC Future Fellowship from 2012 to 2016.

I teach and engage in research in the field of Statistical Machine Learning and Computer Vision.

These days I focus 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.

I am a Chief Investigator and Project Leader of:
