Prof. Xianghua Xie

I am currently a Professor in the Visual Computing Group at the Department of Computer Science, University of Swansea. I was holding an RCUK Academic Fellowship between September 2009 and March 2012, a Senior Lecturer between October 2012 and March 2013, and Associate Professor till February 2019. Prior to my position at Swansea, I was a Research Associate in the Computer Vision Group, Department of Computer Science, University of Bristol, working on a European Commission project, CASBliP.

I received my M.Sc. degree (with commendation) in Advanced Computing in 2002 from the University of Bristol, UK. Then, I continued to pursue a Ph.D. degree in the same department from the end of 2002, under the supervision of Prof. Majid Mirmehdi. Prof. Barry Thomas was also involved in cosupervision at the earlier stage. I finished my Ph.D. study in March 2006.

I have strong research interests in video analysis, stereo systems, active contour models, level set methods, texture analysis, and medical image understanding.

You may call me Jason, if you struggle to pronounce a name beginning with "X" (I have two!). My surname is pronounced probably similar to "Shay".
