Overview

I am a lecturer in the School of Computer Science and Informatics, and a member of the Visual Computing research group.

My research interests span three active areas in computer science: visual computing (computer graphics and computer vision), geometry processing and machine learning. Recently, I'm working on understanding the training dynamics of deep neural networks (with an emphasis on Generative Adversarial Networks) and expanding their applications in visual computing.

Please see my personal webpage for more information.
