I am an Associate Professor at School of Mathematical and Computing Sciences, Heriot-Watt University (Malaysia Campus). Previously, I was a Senior Lecturer at Multimedia University, Malaysia where I chaired the Centre for Visual Computing (CVC), and founded the Visual Processing (ViPr) Lab. From 2017-2019, I was also a Visiting Research Fellow at Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) as a recipient of the Belt and Road Initiative Young Scientist Fellowship.

I am currently serving as the Associate Editor of the EURASIP Journal of Image and Video Processing, IEEE Access and Frontiers in Signal Processing (Image Processing section). I am also a Senior Member of IEEE, and a Member of the IEEE Multimedia Systems and Applications (MSA) Technical Committee (CAS) for Term 2020-2024 and Multimedia Signal Processing (MMSP) Technical Committee (SPS) for Term 2021-2023.

My research interests span broadly the areas of computer vision and pattern recognition. In particular, my current research focuses on the computability of highly subjective tasks: facial micro-expression analysis, aesthetics and emotions from images, as well as a broad spectrum of visual surveillance tasks (activity recognition, long-term analytics, person/group re-identification).

I am looking for motivated students (PhD, Masters/Bachelor) or voluntary research associates who have a keen interest in these problems.

Note: Due to the global pandemic situation, it is unlikely that I can host visitors or interns "physically", but "virtual" collaborations are always welcomed (we can figure out)!
