I am engaged in research and teaching in the field of computer science and software engineering.
I gained my BEng degree in machine and electronic technology from the Xidian University, China, in 2006.
After graduation, I was appointed as a software engineer and carried out development work on Computer Vision (CV)-based quality control systems. These included assembly line monitoring and industrial robotic controls.
In 2008, I became a postgraduate student in the University of Huddersfield and gained my PhD degree at 2012. I then became a research fellow and carried out independent research on image processing, analysing and understanding. I joined Sheffield Hallam University in 2017.
My interests are focused on the real-world applications of computer vision systems, and I have published more than 20 journal and conference papers in fields related to this.
I am a member of British Machine Vision Association (BMVA) and British Computer Society (BCS).
I also served as chair and editor for International Conference on Automation and Computing.
