I received the B.Eng. degree from the
School of Automation
at Southeast University
(Nanjing, Jiangsu, China) in 2001, and the Ph.D. degree from the
School of Electrical and
Electronic Engineering at Nanyang Technological University
(Singapore) in 2007. In 2005, I had visited
the Illinois Genetic Algorithms laboratory (led by Prof. David
E. Goldberg) at the University of Illinois at
Urbana- Champaign (Urbana, IL, USA)
for three months. From 2007 to 2009, I had worked as a
postdoctoral fellow in the Vision and Image Processing Lab in the
Department of Systems
Design Engineering at the University of Waterloo (Waterloo, Ontario, Canada). From
2010 to 2012, I had worked in the
INRIA Grenoble Rhone-Alpes (Grenoble, France), firstly as a
postdoctoral researcher and then as an expert engineer. From
2012 to 2017, I had worked in the School of Science at
(Melbourne, Australia) as
Vice-Chancellor's Research Fellow,
Lecturer and Senior Lecturer.
Now, I am an Associate Professor in the
Department of Computer Science and
Software Engineering and the
Data Science Research Institute at
Swinburne University of Techonogy.
My major research interests include:
Machine Learning, Evolutionary Optimization, Image Processing, GPU
Computing, Services Computing, and Mobile and Pervasive Computing.
I am looking for self-motivated PhD students and visiting scholars to
work in my team.
For PhD applicants, you must have a Bachelor Degree and/or Master Degree
in the related fields (click
detailed entry requirements). If you intend to apply, please send your
CV and transcript to me.
For visiting scholars, you should have previous research exeriences
related to one or more of my research areas. I would only take 1~2
visting scholars in my team to garantee that I have enough time to
work with you during your visit. If you are interested in making a
visit, please send me an email with your CV.
Note: For PhD applicants funded by
China Scholarship Council (CSC),
Swinburne will provide a top-up and tuition fee waiver. Please contact
me for detail.
