Stefanos P. Zafeiriou (M’09) is currently a Reader in Machine Learning and Computer Vision with the Department of Computing, Imperial College London, London, U.K, and a Distinguishing Research Fellow with University of Oulu under Finish Distinguishing Professor Programme. He also holds an EPSRC Fellowship. He was a recipient of the Prestigious Junior Research Fellowships from Imperial College London in 2011 to start his own independent research group. He was the recipient of the President's Medal for Excellence in Research Supervision for 2016. He has received various awards during his doctoral and post-doctoral studies. He currently serves as an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Affective Computing and Computer Vision and Image Understanding journal. In the past he held editorship positions in IEEE Transactions on Cybernetics the Image and Vision Computing Journal. He has been a Guest Editor of over six journal special issues and co-organised over 13 workshops/special sessions on specialised computer vision topics in top venues, such as CVPR/FG/ICCV/ECCV (including three very successfully challenges run in ICCV’13, ICCV’15 and CVPR'17 on facial landmark localisation/tracking). He has co-authored over 55 journal papers mainly on novel statistical machine learning methodologies applied to computer vision problems, such as 2-D/3-D face analysis, deformable object fitting and tracking, shape from shading, and human behaviour analysis, published in the most prestigious journals in his field of research, such as the IEEE T-PAMI, the International Journal of Computer Vision, the IEEE T-IP, the IEEE T-NNLS, the IEEE T-VCG, and the IEEE T-IFS, and many papers in top conferences, such as CVPR, ICCV, ECCV, ICML. His students are frequent recipients of very prestigious and highly competitive fellowships, such as the Google Fellowship x2, the Intel Fellowship, and the Qualcomm Fellowship x3. He has more than 4500 citations to his work, h-index 36. He is the General Chair of BMVC 2017.
