Professor Huang received his B.Sc. degree from Peking University (1999), M.Eng. degree from Chinese Academy of Sciences (2002), and Ph.D. degree (2008) from Rutgers University. He went on working as a postdoctoral researcher at Rutgers University, before coming back to China in 2010 and joined Huazhong University of Science and Technology as a faculty member. From 2012 to 2016 he was a research scientist in NEC Laboratories China. He is now an Associate Professor in The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen.
Professor Huang has worked on various research topics including subspace analysis, deformable models, probabilistic graphical models, and their applications in computer vision, pattern recognition and medical imaging. His more recent research focuses on machine learning methods for intelligent video surveillance, including pedestrian detection, tracking, identification, etc. Currently he is working on vision for robotics. He has published more than 50 papers in related areas and has been the principal investigator of various research grants.
