Dr. Khoo Hee Kooi joined UOW Malaysia KDU Penang University College in 2013, as a lecturer in the Department of Computing, School of Engineering, Computing and Built Environment. He received his Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in 2013 from Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM), in the field of Computational Intelligence. His previous career was as a Research Officer in USM. There were several government research projects conducted. His main research projects were funded by MOSTI’s eScience fund and USM’s Research University (RU) grants. These projects involved the research work on image analysis, feature extraction, segmentation and classification. Dr Khoo’s research focus has been upon visual data since his postgraduate studies commenced in 2008. He has made a contribution to knowledge in this domain, with results being published internationally, principally within IEEE and InTech Open. This solid foundation of academic endeavor has enabled the research to be taken another step forward, into the area of object recognition. His current research involves the study of an object in terms of its physical appearances, its characteristics and the relationships between the sub-object materials. The research work includes algorithm design, image and video processing, graphics renderings, artificial intelligence and machine learning.
