My Research Interests

I am now an associate Professor in Department of Computer Science and Technology, Nanjing University since 2007, also a member of the State Key Lab for Novel Software and Technology at Nanjing University, China. I was an assistant Professor from 2005 to 2007. My research focuses on pattern recognition (document analysis area) and computer graphics. Automatic understanding and visualizing the content of everyday real data stream is one of the fundamental challenges in computer science, and we believe that significant advances will be made over the next few years by combining state of the art graphics/image/video analysis tools with emerging machine learning and statistical modeling techniques. I have established the IMAGINE Lab (Intelligent Media Pervasive, Recognition & Understanding Lab) for exploring the research.


I am a member of International Assocation of Pattern Recognition (IAPR-TC 10 and IAPR-TC 11). I've published more than 50 jounal/conference papers on Pattern Recognition, Computer Graphics and Multimedia, including IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence, Graphical Models, Computer-Aided Design, Multimedia Tools and Applications, IET Computer Vision, International Journal on Document Analysis and Recognition, Computer Aided Design and Applications, ACM Multimedia, Multimedia Modeling, ICPR, ICDAR, DAS and others. I am also the Youth Editor of Frontiers of Computer Science journal, and the reviewer of international journals consisting of Computer-Aided Design, IET Computer Vision, IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics - Part B (SMCB - Part B), ACM Transactions on Asian Language Information Processing, International Journal on Document Analysis and Recognition, Journal of Xi'an Jiaotong University. I am the PC member of more than 20 international conferences.
