Biography

Dan Zeng is currently a research assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech). She received the B.E. and Ph.D. degrees in computer science and technology from Sichuan University (SCU) in 2013 and 2018, under the supervision of distinguished Prof. Zhisheng You(杰出教授,游志胜教授) and Prof. Qijun Zhao(赵启军教授). Since 2012, she participated in ‘3+2+3’ Joined Study of Bachelor and Doctoral Degree programs at Sichuan University (Top 5%). She worked as a post-doc research fellow in the Data Management and Biometrics (DMB) Lab at the University of Twente (UT), the Netherlands from 2018 to 2020, under the supervision of Prof. Raymond Veldhuis and Assoc. Prof. Luuk Spreeuwers. Her major research interests include Biometrics and Computer vision. Her research is motivated by a desire to enhance human and animal perception through biometrics and visual computing methods. Her recent research interests lie in tiny face super-resolution, face recognition and 3D face modeling, facial expression recognition, animal facial landmark localization, animal pose estimation, and real-time UAV tracking. For publications, please see the Google Scholar in the following link. She is a member of the IEEE.

I am seeking highly motivated students, RAs, and interns to be part of our team. If you're interested, you are welcome to drop me an email :)
