My current research is about computer vision, machine learning, and human-computer interactions. My core research interest is human-centred computing as developing techniques for sensing, understanding, and serving the human user.
The task is the estimation of where the people looking from the input eye/face image. The methodology is mainly about computer vision and machine learning techniques.
My current research on HCI is applying the computer vision methods, such as gaze estimation, to the HCI task.
My next five years (2022-2027) research plan is to develop the talking virtual avatar that can act like a human being. The virtual avatar can be used for HCI application and human-related modelling.
Biomechanical prior model
My next ten years (2022 - 2032) research plan is to develop computer vision and machine learning tools for biology- and healthcare-related research. As the starting point, I will introduce the biomechanical prior for the human-related models.
I am an assistant professor at TU Delft since August 2021. I was a postdoc researcher (2018-2021) in the Advanced Interaction Technologies Lab at ETH Zurich, led by Prof. Otmar Hilliges. I did my PhD research (2013-2018) at Max Planck Institute for Informatics (MPII) (summa cum laude) under the supervision of Prof. Andreas Bulling in Saarbruken, Germany.
Doctor of Engineering (summa cum laude), 2018
