Dr. Shenghua Gao is an assistant professor, PI in ShanghaiTech University, China. He received the B.E. degree from the University of Science and Technology of China in 2008 (outstanding graduates), and received the Ph.D. degree from the Nanyang Technological University in 2012. From Jun 2012 to Jul 2014, he worked as a postdoctoral fellow in Advanced Digital Sciences Center, Singapore. His research interests include computer vision and machine learning, and now he is focusing on face and object recognition. He has published more than 20 papers on object and face recognition related topics in many international conferences and journals, including IEEE T-PAMI, IEEE TIP, IEEE TNNLS, IEEE TMM, IEEE TCSVT, CVPR, ECCV, etc.). He was awarded the Microsoft Research Fellowship in 2010.
