I am an Associate Professor with the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and an associate director of the ROSE lab, which is jointly established by NTU and PKU, China. Previously, I had a joint appointment at the Advanced Digital Science Center (operated by UIUC) as a research scientist from 2010 to 2014. I received my PhD degree from UIUC under the supervision of Prof. David Forsyth. I am an associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence (TPAMI) and serve as area chairs and general chairs for prestigious conferences and workshops such as ICCV. I am a recipient of the MIT Technology Review innovator under 35 award and a number of other awards such as Harriett & Robert Perry Fellowship, CS/AI award, best paper awards from PREMIA (Pattern Recognition and Machine Intelligence Association), etc. I led a team to achieve top 5 in the ImageNet challenge on scene classification in 2015 and 2016 respectively. The technologies invented by my group have been successfully licensed to 6 international and local companies.

My research interests include:
1) Developing effective and efficient machine learning techniques which can advance the general artifiical intleligence research;
2) Developing working computer vision systems and technqiues;

My group is consistently looking for self-motivated researchers and PhD students to join us to conduct high quality research on machine learning and computer vision. If you are interested, please send your CV to "wanggang at". We will provide competitive salary, outstanding research facilities, and excellent research environment.
