Abeer Almowallad

My name is Abeer Almowallad, and I am a PhD student candidate at the Computer Science Department under the supervision of DR. Victor Sanchez. I am a member of Warwick University's Signal and Information Processing (SIP) Lab, where I work on the application of facial emotion analysis from images using deep learning methods.

Research Interest

My main interest is in facial emotion analysis from images, as I am working on recognising the intensity of each emotion among a mixture of several emotions. To achieve this goal, I am employing deep learning methods based on CNNs and modified convolutional layers.
