Computer Vision, Image Processing, Machine Learning, Robotics & AI.


My research interest focuses on 3D visual perception, robot navigation and autonomous driving, machine learning, and AI (artificial intelligence) in general.


I am a Professor in Computer Vision @ANU. I am a founding CI (Chief Investigator) for the Australia ARC Centre of Excellence for Robotic Vision (CE14—$40 million funding strength), and a faculty member of the Computer Vision and Robotics group at the ANU, where I do teaching and research in the field of Computer Vision (3D Vision Reconstruction, SFM and Robot SLAM), Image Processing, and Machine Learning. I was a visiting professor at the Robotics Institute of CMU, Carnegie Mellon University, for 2017— 2018. During 2008-2009 I was with NICTA as a Senior Scientist contributing to the ARC-funded Australia’s Bionic Eye (special initiative, major grant of $52 millions). Prior to 2010 I was a Fellow with the RSISE @ ANU and a seconded Senior Researcher with NICTA (National ICT Australia), Canberra Labs until 2008. I am privileged to be working under the mentoring of Professor Richard Hartley at ANU since 2004. Previously I was Associate School Director (Research) for ANU School of Engineering.
