I am a postdoc in Torr Vision Group at University of Oxford. I received my PhD degree from University College London in 2014, supervised by Prof. Massimiliano Pontil and Prof. Nadia Berthouze. I have published in top-tier machine learning conferences such as NIPS, ICML and AISTATS, receiving several awards such as the Best Paper Runner-up Prize at ICML 2013, and the Best Paper Award at ACII 2013. During my PhD I interned at Microsoft Research, Redmond, mentored by Dr. Cha Zhang.

My research focuses on multitask and transfer learning methods applied to computer vision tasks such as object recognition and segmentation, and emotion recognition.
