Personal profile

Biography

Roland Goecke, Ph.D. is Professor of Affective Computing in the School of Information Technology & Systems at the Faculty of Science & Technology. He is the Director of the Human-Centred Technology Research Centre and Head of the Vision and Sensing Group. Professor Goecke is also Research Leader for the Information Technology & Systems research program. He served the faculty as Associate Dean Research & Innovation from Nov 2015 to Dec 2020.

His research interests are in affective computing, computational behaviour analysis, social signal processing, pattern recognition, computer vision, human-computer interaction, multimodal signal processing and e-research. Professor Goecke focuses on algorithms that enable computers to understand the human user, to know who they are, what their mental / health state is; to support their well-being, performance and learning. This research finds applications in mental health research, health and well-being, behaviour analysis, sports performance analysis, biometrics, human-computer interaction, video / image analysis and multimedia retrieval. His research is funded by the ARC, ANDS, MRFF, NeCTAR, NHMRC, the US NSF, and industry partners. Professor Goecke is an experienced research student supervisor. He is a senior member of the IEEE and a member of ACM, ISCA and AAAC. He currently serves on the editorial board of Pattern Recognition and the IEEE Transactions on Affective Computing.

Professor Goecke holds a Master in Computer Science (1998) from the University of Rostock, Germany, and a PhD (2004) in Computer Science from the Australian National University, Canberra, Australia. Before joining UC in December 2008, he worked as a Senior Research Scientist with Seeing Machines, as a Researcher at the NICTA Canberra Research Lab, and as a Research Fellow at the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics, Germany.
