Biography

Dr. Sai-Kit Yeung is currently an Assistant Professor at the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD). Before joining SUTD, he had been a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Department of Mathematics, University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). He was also a visiting student at the Image Processing Research Group at UCLA in 2008 spring and summer and at the Image Sciences Institute, University Medical Center Utrecht, the Netherlands in 2007 summer. He is an HKUST alumni, graduated with a BEng degree (First Class Honors) in Computer Engineering in 2003, received his MPhil degree in Bioengineering in 2005, and completed his PhD degree in Electronic and Computer Engineering in 2009, all from HKUST.

Dr Yeung’s research expertises are in the areas of computer vision, computer graphics and image processing. His current research focus is primarily on the role of Total Variation (TV), Sparsity, Tensor Voting in computer vision and graphics and image processing. Dr. Yeung also works on human-computer interaction (HCI) with application on transparent object reconstruction, image registration and computational photography. Recently he is also working on layout arrangement and character dressing problem for realistic virtual world modeling.
