  • B.A.Sc. (Engineering Science, University of Toronto, Canada, 2006)

I am an Assistant Professor in Computer Science at the School of Computing since 2018, where I lead the Computer Vision and Machine Learning group. My students and I develop algorithms for automated interpretation of images and video. We work on topics ranging from segmentation, pose estimation, to video understanding. Before coming to NUS, I was a junior professor at the University of Bonn, Germany. I received my PhD in 2012 from ETH Zurich.
