Shao-Ping Lu

I am an associate professor at Nankai University in Tianjin, China since January 2018. Before that, I was a senior researcher at Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB), where as a postdoc I worked with Prof. Adrian Munteanu. I received my PhD degree 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/3D image and video processing, computational photography and representation, visual scene analysis, machine learning and mathematical optimization.
