Short Bio

Guansong Pang is a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Computer Science at the School of Computing and Information Systems, Singapore Management University (SMU). He was a Research Fellow with the Australian Institute for Machine Learning (AIML), University of Adelaide, where he worked with Professors Anton van den Hengel and Chunhua Shen. Before joining AIML, he received his Ph.D. at University of Technology Sydney, co-supervised by Professors Longbing Cao, Ling Chen and Huan Liu (ASU).

His research investigates novel data mining and machine learning techniques, with a research theme focused on abnormal, rare, or unknown instance detection, and robust, generalized learning algorithms for creating trustworthy continual AI systems. Some research areas of particular interest include:

  • Anomaly detection

  • Open-world learning (out-of-distribution detection, open-set recognition, long-tailed classification, continual learning, open-vocabulary learning, etc.)

  • Graph representation learning

  • Out-of-distribution generalization

  • Deep reinforcement learning for knowledge discovery

He also explores safety-critical and commercially/scientifically-significant real-world applications, including network intrusion detection, fraud detection, person re-identification, early detection of diseases, learning from biomedicine data, defect detection, biometric anti-spoofing, hate/toxic speech detection, etc.


Actively looking for candidates of the following positions; feel free to get in touch if you are interested:

  • Highly motivated PhD students with strong background in computer science or statistics (SMU scholarships, S$2,200-S$5,000 monthly stipend).

  • Visiting professor/student positions (self-funded).

In addition to SMU scholarships, candidates can also join the team via scholarships for joint A*Star and SMU PhD programs:

  • ACIS scholarship for Singaporeans or those studied in Singapore (S$4,550-S$5,800 monthly stipend)

  • SINGA scholarship for international students (S$2,200-S$2,700 monthly stipend)

SMU is ranked No. 36 globally (No. 16 in Asia) in the broad AI category and No.81 globally (No. 14 in Asia) in the overall CS subject according to CSRankings.
