In 1996, he joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, National University of Singapore, where he is an Associate Professor now. For the past decade, his research interests are related to the various problems in dynamic vision, such as the basic processes in the perception of three-dimensional motion, shape and their relationship, otherwise known as the structure from motion (SFM) , as well as 3D motion segmentation, change detection, tracking, action recognition, etc.. His current research interest also lies in utilizing a broad range of mathematical advances such as combinatorial optimization and sparse representation for solving various vision problems. He has published near 100 papers in these areas in international refereed journals and conferences.
Loong Fah is now the Research Area Director for the Signal Processing and New Media (SPNM) group.
