Chia-Yen Chen received her B.Sc. (1996) and M.Sc. with First Class Honours (1999), as well as Ph.D. degrees (2004) from the Department of Computer Science, at the University of Auckland, New Zealand.
She has been a Lecturer in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Auckland from 2002 to 2006, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering at National Chung Cheng University from 2006 to 2007. Since 2007, she has been an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Information Engineering at National University of Kaohsiung, in Taiwan.
Dr. Chen's research interests include 3D reconstructions, computer vision, as well as augmented reality and related applications. She has received and directed more than 10 projects related to computer vision and 3D reconstructions, from the National Science Council of Taiwan since 2007. Dr. Chen has received the Best Poster Award from IVCNZ 2009 conference, the Excellent Paper Awards from ITOAI 2013 and IPPR CVGIP 2013 conferences.

Lab Introduction

The Vision and Geometry lab is focused on 3D data acquisition, processing and applications. We use a variety of 3D reconstruction techniques to reconstruct the 3D models of objects or environment, such as vision based approaches including binocular stereo, structured lighting, photometric stereo, shape from motion and shape from contours, as well as using lasers or LiDAR devices for range detection. In addition, we also investigate possible applications of 3D data, such as in 3D augmented reality or other interactive applications.
