I joined the School of Information and Communication Technology at Griffith University in June 2012. My previous appointments include Research Fellow in the Research School of Computer Science at the Australian National University, Researcher in the NICTA Canberra research lab, Visiting Scientist at CSIRO Mathematics, Informatics and Statistics, and Conjoinder Lecturer in the School of Engineering and Information Technology at the University of New South Wales. I was a recipient of the Australian Research Council Discovery Early Career Researcher Award in 2012. My main research areas are hyperspectral imaging, computer vision, pattern recognition and their applications to remote sensing, agriculture, environment, and medicine. Some topics being studied now include: hypespecral image preprocessing and denoising, hyperspectral image visualization, spectral-spatial feature extraction, hyperspectral unmixing, object detection and classification, hyperspectral video tracking, 3D modelling and depth estimation, multi-modal data fusion, and deep learning for material based scene interpretation. I am actively seeking excellent PhD students. If you are interested in the topics of my research, and would like to pursue further study under my supervision, please do not hesitate to contact me. I also accept visiting scholars/students, Master's students, and honour students. Students who are supported by or are considering applying for the support from the Chinese Scholarship Council are welcomed to contact me. Link to my Google Scholar page: Link to my DBLP page:
