Short Bio

Guansong Pang is a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Computer Science at School of Computing and Information Systems, Singapore Management University (SMU). He was a Research Fellow with the Australian Institute for Machine Learning (AIML) at the 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, supervised by Professors Longbing Cao, Ling Chen and Huan Liu (ASU).

His research investigates novel data mining and machine learning techniques and their applications, with a research theme focused on abnormality and rarity learning for guarding the health, safety and security in both digital and physical worlds. Some research areas of particular interest include anomaly detection, open-world learning (out-of-distribution detection, open-set recognition, long-tailed classification, etc.), graph learning, representation learning, and 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.

  • A research engineer with good machine learning or data mining background (until the position is filled)

  • Research fellow positions: SG Academies South-East Asia Fellowship Programme (2022 Round) is open for application until 30 November, 2022.

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

SMU is ranked No. 36 globally (No. 14 in Asia) in the broad AI category and No.82 globally (No. 14 in Asia) in the overall CS discipline according to CSRankings.
