I am a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) affiliated with the Vision, Learning, and Control (VLC) group in the School of Electronics and Computer Science (ECS) at the University of Southampton. My primary research is dedicated to advancing generative computer vision and continual machine learning within the context of artificial general intelligence. The overarching goal is to equip machines with a wide range of digital intelligences, encompassing rational, emotional, and imaginal aspects, in order to amplify and enhance biological intelligences. At present, I am particularly interested in exploring machine learning methodologies, including generative modeling, continual learning, and affective computing, to drive forward these research objectives.
I am looking for motivated and talented researchers/students to join our research group. Please have a look at the Openings and reach me if you are interested.
