Dr Hubert P. H. Shum is an Associate Professor in Computer Science at Durham University researching on human-centric computer vision and graphics. Before this, he worked as the Director of Research/Associate Professor/Senior Lecturer at Northumbria University, and a Postdoctoral Researcher at RIKEN Japan. He received his PhD degree from the University of Edinburgh, his Master and Bachelor degrees from the City University of Hong Kong. To develop his team, he led research projects as the Principal Investigator awarded by EPSRC, the Ministry of Defence (DASA) and the Royal Society. This facilitated him to supervise more than 20 PhDs, recruit multiple Post-doctoral Researchers, and collaborate with international researchers from the UK, China, France, Japan and India. To engage the academic and industrial networks, he has chaired international conferences such as Pacific Graphics, BMVC, ACM SIGGRAPH/Eurographics SCA and ACM SIGGRAPH MIG. Contributing to the research community, he has served as an Associate Editor for Computer Graphics Forum, a Guest Editor for the International Journal of Computer Vision, and a Program Committee member in 15 conferences such as Eurographics, CVPR and Pacific Graphics. He has authored over 150 research publications in the fields of computer vision, computer graphics, machine learning and biomedical engineering, particularly focusing on the modelling of human-related data.
