I am currently with the School of Artificial Intelligence, Xidian University, China. In general, my research interests are visual perception & cognition, computer vision and intelligent algorithms. I received my Ph.D. from Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology in 2006. During the three-year program, I explored computational geometry algorithms on a variety of vision problems. Afterward, I moved to National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology at Tsukuba, and worked on robotics vision. From 2008, I simultaneously worked at University College London & Queen Mary University of London for the research of visual perception on motion. From 2010, I was assigned as Associate Professor at Graduate School of Informatics, Kyoto University. In 2018, I joined Xidian University.
