1. Designed and developed a real-time face detection and eye pupil detection system using live

stream video cameras/web cameras. This system captures the illumination invariant features of facial and eye pupils and computes mutual information of local candidate eye patches to find the best eye pupil candidate location in almost real time (more than 10 fps) and the detected eye


pupil location is more than 95% correct within 3 pixels error tolerance. The system is developed under Eclipse C ++ environment and uses OpenCV.

2. Designed and developed a 3D face recognition and 3D facial expression recognition system.

This system extracts geometric/temporal features from a high volume (1.5 TB) facial data base and applies several machine learning algorithms (2D HMM, genetic algorithm, Bayesian, and

discriminative analysis like PCA/LDA) for recognition tasks. We demonstrated our system

has better recognition performance compared to traditional 2D image/video based approaches. (Using C ++ , MATLAB)

3. Designed and developed a wrl/obj reader software that can be a post-processing tool to load,

visualize, render, and edit 3D dynamic and static facial models. This tool can read structured files like wrl or obj files to construct 3D shape model and supports standard bmp or jpg file as

texture file for 3D model rendering. It’s developed under Microsoft Visual Studio 2003 and uses OpenGL.

4. Designed and developed an automatic 3D head pose orientation estimation algorithm. This

algorithm uses unsupervised learning method to find the facial feature that is robust with pose

and expression variations and achieves 97% correct estimation. It’s developed using C ++ and MATLAB.

Worked on computer vision and medical image processing. Designed and developed an active shape based image segmentation algorithm for prostate contouring of QCT images. This algo- rithm first removes the noise in QCT images by applying low band filters then uses active shape contouring method to find the candidate prostate contour in the edge image of the original QCT image. The accuracy is 95% compared with manually labeled contour by experts. This algorithm saves doctors’ time from five minutes to less than two seconds for contouring possible prostate tumor shape in one QCT image. It’s developed under Microsoft Visual C ++ 6.0 environment.

1. Designed and developed a heart-beat fault detection module and an interactive visual com-

munication module for a remote patient monitoring system. The system is composed of both client and server ends. The client end is connected with sensors and has a web camera to mon- itor the patient. The server end receives the ECG signal and monitoring video from the client

simultaneously, detects wave pattern from electrocardiography (ECG) and reports alarm when the detected wave pattern has significant difference with store normal patterns. Once the alarm

is on, the operator in the server end can control the camera’s setting remotely to have a better view of the patient’s situation.

2. Developed a sequential image registration algorithm based on the spatial distribution of ob-

jects of interest, this algorithm helps find the best match location of the query image from the

current image by 20 percentage.

3. Integrated an image processing tool with functionalities including image enhancement, color

space transformation, geometric transformation, histogram equalization, and image registration;

Education State University of New York (SUNY) at Binghamton, NY 01/2004 - present Candidate of Philosophy of Doctor in Computer Science Advisor: Professor Lijun Yin Ph.D. thesis topic: Spatial/temporal 3D facial surface analysis for recognition. Traditionally, human facial expressions have been studied using either 2D static images or 2D video sequences. The 2D-based analysis is difficult to handle large pose variations and subtle facial behavior. This exploratory research targets the facial expression analysis and recognition in a 3D space. The analysis of 3D facial expressions will facilitate the examination of the fine structural changes inherent in the spontaneous expressions. My thesis work aims to achieve a high rate of accuracy in identifying a wide range of facial expressions, with the ultimate goal of increasing the general understanding of facial behavior and 3D structure of facial expressions on a detailed level. I developed a curvature distribution based algorithm on static 3D static database and conducted comparative study with 2D image based approaches for facial expression recogni- tion. I also developed a real 2D HMM plus curvature transformed LDA based algorithm for facial expression recognition and designed different structures of classifiers to fit the dynamic 3D face scenario and other related projects. The study demonstrated that the combination of spacial and temporal dynamics of human’s 3D facial surface achieves better recognition performance compared with the 2D and static 3D approaches.
