About Dr. Terence Sim
Explain. Demonstrate. Experiment. Inspire.
The above sums up my teaching and research philosophy. Over the years, I had the pleasure of teaching many courses - Introductory Programming, Computer Vision, Visual Effects, Multimedia - and interacting with many talented students. I'm currently teaching Discrete Structures, and Biometrics Authentication.
For research, I explore several areas related to Visual Computing: Facial image analysis, Multimodal biometrics, Facial rendering, Computational photography, Continuous authentication, Music transcription, to name a few. I combine machine learning with physics-based modeling and graphics rendering to tackle the challenges in research.
I also provide consultancy in biometrics.
