Welcome to Dr Yonghuai Liu's Homepage


PhD opportunity

You are warmly welcome to join me to do exciting research in my research areas:

3D imaging, range image registration, learning, projective registration, feature extraction and matching, Markov random field, belief propagation, Makov process, motion coherence theory, non-rigid registration, data and information fusion, uncertain reasoning, mean field annealing, replicator dynamics, mean shift, entropy, weighted least squares, computational geometry, similarity, clustering and classification, segmentation, thin plate spline, approximation theory, Bayesian inference, damped harmonic motion, artificial neural network, and evolutionary computation.

My research emphasizes the application of the developed techniques in various fields:

reverse engineering, computer aided geometric design, machine vision, object recognition, robot vision, computer graphics, medical image analysis, industrial inspection, special effect creation and computer games, Internet search, and intelligent systems.

If you are interested in pursuing a PhD degree in the above fields, then please do not hesitate to contact me and discuss the details at yyl@aber.ac.uk or give me a ring through +44 1970 621688.
