  Welcome

Dr. Khoa Luu is a full-time research scientist and a postdoc in Cylab Biometrics Center at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), USA. He leads biometric projects and collaborates with graduate students and research scholars to build stand-alone biometric systems. He received his Ph.D degree in Computer Science under supervision of Prof. Marios Savvides in Carnegie Mellon University, Prof. Tien D. Bui and Prof. Ching Y. Suen, the Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Pattern Recognition, in Centre for Pattern Recognition and Machine Intelligence (CENPARMI) at Concordia University, Canada. He has published more than 20 papers in high quality conferences and journals and received two best paper awards in IEEE International Conference on Biometrics: Theory, Applications and Systems (BTAS), Washington DC in 2011 and 2012. He has one filed patent, and two others under pending. His Ph.D. thesis has been nominated for the Governor General Gold Medal in Canada. His research achievements have appeared in several media news in both Canada and U.S. He was a vice chair of Montreal Chapter IEEE SMCS in Canada from September 2009 to March 2011.

His research interests focus on various topics, including Biometrics, Image Processing, Computer Vision, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Multifactor Analysis, Correlation Filters and Compressed Sensing. He currently studies on soft biometric topics, especially Facial Age Estimation and Progression based on familial information. He is currently a reviewer for several high-quality scientific journals, such as: IEEE Trans. on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence (TPAMI), IEEE Transaction on Image Processing (TIP), Journal of Image and Vision Computing and Journal of Pattern Recognition Letters.
