Xun Li

Research Associate
My area of research interest is computer vision for real-world applications: intelligent video surveillance, geospatial and agricultural systems.
 

I obtained my PhD degree from UNSW in late 2013, where I worked on integrating geo-spatial information with computer vision for vision-based mapping and navigation.

In 2014 I joined High Resolution Plant Phenomics Centre (HRPPC), CSIRO and worked in the software team to develop visual processing pipelines/software for agriculture applications. The main goal is to use computer vision technologies, such as machine learning, 3D reconstruction, point cloud processing, and image processing to analyse information collected from various plant phenotyping platforms (including helicopter, UAV, field robotics and controlled environment imaging platforms) and build automated systems for intelligent farming.

In early 2020 I returned to UNSW as a postdoctoral research associate. My current research project is using video analysis to build intelligent surveillance systems, focusing on pedestrian tracking and human action recognition.
