Hayley Hung

Hello, welcome to my webpage.

I am an Assistant Professor at the Technical University of Delft, working on social aware surveillance systems. Previously, I had a Marie Curie Postdoctoral Research fellowship on the AnaSID (Analysing Social Interactions from a Distance) project, in the Intelligent Autonomous Systems Group at the University of Amsterdam, working with Ben Krose. Before that, I was a PostDoc at IDIAP working on multimodal meeting analysis for modelling dominance and influence in meetings, working with Daniel Gatica-Perez. Before this, I was at Queen Mary University Vision Group.

Want a quick summary of what I do? Here are some links to related talks and videos:

Researchs Interests

My main research interests are concerned with automatic human behaviour understanding, social signal processing, computer vision, multimodal processing and machine learning. Research Page... Projects available

I have some open Masters thesis projects on developing automated methods of human behavior analysis. Please get in touch if you would like to do your masters thesis on this topic.
