PhD positions available: I am currently looking for research students, in particular for those with good Mathematics or programming background, to work in the areas of computer vision or computer graphics. Our current research focus is on applying deep learning techniques to solve computer vision and graphics problems. (Refer to our research projects and publications for more information.) The deadline for PhD application is December 1, 2017. In case if you have a strong academic background, you may also be considered for the Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme. If you are interested to join my research group, please email me your CV and transcripts for consideration.
