I am an Associate Professor (Reader) in Computer Science and the Programme Leader of BSc (Hons) Computer Animation and Visual Effects at Northumbria University. I lead the Computer Graphics and Computer Vision research team, which focuses on a range of problems including human motion analysis, machine learning and character animations. Before this, I worked as a Senior Lecturer at Northumbria University, a Lecturer at the University of Worcester, a postdoctoral researcher at RIKEN Japan, and a research assistant at the City University of Hong Kong. I received my PhD degree from the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh, as well as my Master and Bachelor degrees from the City University of Hong Kong. I have received £124,000 from EPSRC for a project on human motion analysis, and have been a funding management officer to manage a €3.03 million Erasmus Mundus project. On top of these, I have received more than £210,000 from Northumbria University to hire PhD students and purchase research equipment.
