Research interests: My research interests are mainly in the area of Machine Learning, e.g. Kernel Methods, Pattern Analysis, Learning Theory, Optimization for Big Data and Probabilistic Bayesian Models.  I also have strong interests in Machine Learning applications in computer vision, bioinformatics and social computing. The goal of my research is to address the computational and statistical challenges arising in modern data analysis, helping the discovery of hidden information in big and complex data. 


Potential graduate students: I am looking for highly motivated students interested in Machine Learning.  Applications should come through the online application system. Studentships are available, please check here for details.  For overseas students, please be aware of the minimum English requirements.  Students from China can also apply for scholarships from the China Scholarship Council (CSC) to study PhD in Exeter. Please contact me if you have any inquiries.
