Stephen Gould is a Professor of Computer Science at the Australian National University (ANU). He is also an Australian Research Council (ARC) Future Fellow and Amazon Scholar. He is a former ARC Postdoctoral Fellow, Microsoft Faculty Fellow, Contributed Researcher at Data61, Principal Research Scientist at Amazon Inc, and Director of the ARC Centre of Excellence in Robotic Vision. Stephen received his BSc degree in mathematics and computer science and BE degree in electrical engineering from the University of Sydney in 1994 and 1996, respectively. He received his MS degree in electrical engineering from Stanford University in 1998. He then worked in industry for several years where he co-founded Sensory Networks, which later sold to Intel in 2013. In 2005 he returned to Stanford University and was awarded his PhD degree in 2010. In November 2010, he moved back to Australia to take up a faculty position at the ANU.
I have broad interests in computer and robotic vision, machine learning, structured models, and optimization. My main research focus is on the application of machine learning techniques to geometric and semantic scene understanding in images and video. I am also interested in seeing research get used; I collaborate with industry and have previously been involved in founding start-up companies.
I am always looking for motivated students who are interested in doing research with me. I encourage ANU students to contact me about undergraduate or PhD research projects. Students outside of ANU who are interested in doing a PhD with me should visit my homepage and read the ANU application procedures before contacting me.
