Biography

I am a PhD student at the Department of Computing, Imperial College London, under the supervision of Dr. Stefanos Zafeiriou. My research interests lie in the fields of Compute Vision, Machine Learning and Human-Computer Interaction. My current work is focused on Deformable Face Tracking and Affect Analysis.

The ultimate goal of my PhD is to develop computational methods for automatic analysis of spontaneous dynamic facial behavior captured in in-the-wild recording settings.
