Shao-Ping Lu ()



I am currently an associate professor at Nankai University in Tianjin, China, where I am also working closely with Prof. Ming-Ming Cheng and Prof. Bo Ren. Before that, I was a senior researcher at Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB), as a postdoc I had been in the team of Prof. Adrian Munteanu. I received my PhD degree in 2012 from Graphics & Geometric Computing Group at Tsinghua University in China under the supervision of Prof. Shi-Min Hu.

My research interests lie primarily in the intersection of visual computing, computer vision and computer graphics, with particular focus on 2D/multiview/3D image and video processing, computational photography and representation, visual scene analysis, machine learning and mathematical optimization.

My contact info: or
College of Computer Science, Nankai University. No.38 Tongyan Road, Jinnan District, Tianjin , P.R. China 300350.

I am looking for highly-motivated students. Feel free to contact me if you are interested in my research.
