Research Interests

My main research lies in utilising evolutionary computation techniques, particularly genetic programming, to effectively and efficiently tackle challenging problems in computer vision and pattern recognition, such as feature detection, feature extraction, feature construction, image classification, object recognition; and applying transfer learning, domain adaptation, and one-shot learning, techniques for image analysis.

  • Feature Manipulation,
  • Pattern Recognition,
  • Computer Vision,
  • Evolutionary Algorithms,
  • Artificial Neural Networks, and
  • Data Mining and Machine Learning.
