Research

Machine Learning, Computer Vision, Signal Processing, neuro-physiological signals, Sensing

Interests

My research is in the area of ‘’Looking at /Sensing People’’, using Machine Learning, Computer Vision and Signal Processing methodologies to interpret and predict actions, behaviour, emotions and cognitive states of people by analysing their images, video and neuro-physiological signals. This includes detection, tracking and recognition of facial and body gestures in unconstrained environments. I have more than 200 publications in the most selective Journals and conferences in the field of Computer Vision, an h-index of 33, and more than 5000 citations. I am associate editor in the journals of Pattern Recognition, Computer Vision and Image Understanding, and Image and Vision Computing, and area chair or in the programme committee of all the major conferences in the field. My research has been funded by the EPSRC, EU FP7 and direct bilateral collaborations with research institutes and the industry.
