NEWS : After close to 9 years of working with amazing colleagues and students at SoC, I have moved to the EECS Department in the Lassonde School of Engineering at York University in Toronto, Canada. I maintain an affiliation with NUS for the purpose of advising students and managing staff still supported on remaining grants. However, I am no longer accepting students at NUS or updating this website. Please visit my new website here.

Research Interests
      Computer vision; image processing; and computer graphics.
