About me

I am an Associate Professor in the School of Computer Science, The University of Adelaide. I received my Ph.D. in Computer Systems Engineering in 2007 from ECSE Department, Monash University. I am also a Chief Investigator of the Australian Centre for Robotic Vision (ACRV), and the Director for Machine Learning for Space at the Australian Institute for Machine Learning.

Here is my CV and contact information.



I actively conduct research in computer vision. Visit my research page and group members for more information.

For several years, I have been working on robust geometric algorithms. See this book which gives a comprehensive account of my work (and the work of others) in this area.

Awards and prizes

I have won several major research awards: a CVPR Award (2015), a BMVC Award (2018), two DST Awards(2015, 2017), and a CVPR Workshop Award (2019). A paper was also selected to the IJCV Special Issue on Best of ECCV 2018.

PhD opportunities

I am always interested to hear from prospective research students. Scholarships are available from time to time—contact me to enquire.
