I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow affilated to Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence Future Science Platform (MLAI FSP) and Robotics & Autonomous Sytems Group (RASG), Data61 of the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), Australia. I am an active member of Embodied AI research cluster lead by Professor Peyman Moghadam and contributor of its label-free representation learning research focus area. My research spans across but not limited to the areas of machine learning, intelligent robotics and computer vision.

I recently completed my Ph.D. in information science at the University of Wollongong and CSIRO Data61. My PhD was about symmetric positive definite (SPD) matrix based visual representation learning with deep networks. I worked at SCIT with the Visual Information Learning and Analysis Group where I was advised by Professor Lei Wang, Professor Changming Sun and Associate Professor Luping Zhou. I also frequently collaborated with Dr. Piotr Koniusz. I completed my M.Res. in computer vision at Multimedia University with the Visual Processing Lab where I was advised by Associate Professor John See and Dr. Chiung Ching Ho. I completed my B.Sc. in Computer Science and Engineering by being the top of my class. Before PhD, I was a machine vision system engineer at Vitrox Corporation Berhad, graduate research assistant at Multimedia University and a lecturer of computer science at International Islamic University Chittagong.

Announcent: I am looking for motivated students for studying important problems in computer vision, machine learning and robotics with financial support. Please feel free to contact me with your resume and academic transcripts.
