Hi, I am Lei, a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at School of Electrical and Information Engineering, the University of Sydney, Australia. Currently, I am working with Associate Prof. Wanli Ouyang. Prior to that, I received my PhD degree in Computer Science from UNSW Sydney under the supervision of Scientia Associate Prof. Lina Yao and Prof. Salil Kanhere.
My research interests lay in Spatial-temporal Intelligence and Annotation Efficient Machine Learning (e.g., self-supervised learning), focusing on developing versatile and robust deep learning algorithms to help computers understand our world both spatially and temporally with less human annotations. The related applications including Human Mobility Analysis (e.g., smart transportation), Human Pattern Recognition (e.g., activity), and IoT Analytics (e.g., network traffic analysis). I serve as the reviewers or program committee members for a set of prestigious conferences and journals such as NeurIPS, ICLR, ICML, AAAI, CVPR, ICCV, IJCAI, KDD, ECCV, TPAMI, TKDE, TIP, TMM etc, and will serve as the Web Chair for DICTA 2022 (Top Australia Pattern Recognition Conference). I am also a recipient of the 2020 Google PhD Fellowship, 2020 UNSW Engineering Excellence Award, and 2021 Dean’s Award for Outstanding PhD Theses.
Welcome discussions and cooperations, feel free to drop me an email if you want.
