Welcome to Juwei's academic website ! 

I have completed my Ph.D under Prof. K. N. Plataniotis and Prof. A. N. Venetsanopoulos at the Multimedia Lab, Edward S. Rogers Sr. Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Toronto. Before starting my PhD, I was with the Center for Signal Processing (now merged into the Institute for Infocomm Research), Singapore, as a research engineer for two years. Currently, I am working at the Epson Toronto Lab.

My Ph.D thesis topic is on "Discriminant Learning for Face Recognition". Kernel machines, Support vector machines, Adaptive boosting, and Bayes discriminant analysis are main techniques used in my research. Some produced results can be found in my publication page.

I am the joint recipient of the 2006 IEEE Trans. on Neural Networks Outstanding Paper Award for the paper Face Recognition Using Kernel Direct Discriminant Analysis Alagorithms by Juwei Lu, K. N. Plataniotis and A. N. Venetsanopoulos, IEEE Trans. on Neural Networks, Vol. 14, No. 1, 2003.
