I am a research fellow of King's college. I work at the Graphics and Interaction group and I am an affiliated lecturer at the Department of Computer Science and Technology. I teach the assessment module for the MPhil Computer Vision course.

My research interests lie in the field of social signal processing and human behaviour understanding, which includes expressions of emotions or medical conditions. My research draws on computer vision, machine learning, Human Computer Interaction (HCI) and psychology, which makes it very exciting in its interdisciplinary aspects.

Research topics

  • Automatic detection of non-verbal signals of psychological distress
  • Multimodal representaion learning (face/gesture/audio/text)
  • Animals affect and automatic facial expressions analysis for animal welfare
  • Ethical machine learning algorithms
