About Me

I am currently a postdoctoral research fellow at S-Lab in Nanyang Technological University, working with Prof. Weisi Lin. I received my Ph.D. degree from Dept. of Computer Science at the University of Hong Kong in January 2021. I did my Ph.D. research at Computer Vision Lab in HKU, advised by Dr. Kenneth K.Y. Wong. Prior to studying at HKU, I received my B.Eng. from Huazhong University of Science and Technology.

My interests are centered around Computer Vision and Deep Learning. Current research topics include:



Sep 2021 - Present Postdoctoral research fellow at S-Lab in NTU, working with Prof. Weisi Lin and Mr. Haoning Wu
Mar 2021 - Aug 2021 Research Assistant at GAP Lab CUHKSZ, worked with Dr. Xiaoguang Han
Nov 2019 - Mar 2021 Research Intern at Alibaba DAMO Academy, worked with Prof. Lei Zhang and Dr. Xiaoming Li
May 2019 - Oct 2019 Research Visitor at VLLab UC Merced, worked with Prof. Ming-Hsuan Yang
Jun 2018 - Mar 2019 Research Intern at Tencent AI Lab, worked with Prof. Zhifeng Li and Dr. Dihong Gong
