I am a Senior Scientist at Inception Institute of Artificial Intelligence since 2018. Previously, I was a Research Scientist in the Computer Vision Research Group (CVRG) at Data61, CSIRO (Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization) from 2016-18. I am also an Adjunct Lecturer at College of Electrical & Computer Science (CECS), Australian National University (ANU) since 2016.

I completed my PhD in Computer Vision from The University of Western Australia (UWA), under the supervision of W/Prof. Mohammed Bennamoun. My PhD thesis received `Honorable Mention on the Dean’s List’ award at the UWA. I also completed an internship at NICTA (National ICT Australia) in 2015 and served as an research affiliate with Australian Center for Robotic Vision (ACRV) during 2016-18.

Positions Available!

I am looking for exceptional an Post-doctoral fellow and Research interns. The Post-doc candidates must have a strong pulication record in top venues (CVPR/ICCV/ECCV for computer vision and NeurIPS/ICLR/ICML for machine learning). Research interns must have good grades in their BS/MS programs (top 20% of their class) and should have relevant background in computer vision/machine learning (demonstrated through relevant coursework or past projects). Please drop me an email with your detailed CV.
