Opening Positions

We have one PhD (co-supervise with Prof. Xiaokang Yang) open for 2022 Fall, in Computer Science, Shanghai Jiao Tong University. Looking for self-motivated students working with me in computer vision. For prospective students, please send your resume and transcript to my email.

Biography

Since May. 2021, I am a tenure-track assistant professor at Shanghai Jiao Tong University. I received my PhD degree from Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2019, supervised by Professor Xiaokang Yang. I received M. E. from École Centrale de Lyon in France. I received B. E. from Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2013. I was a research scientist at the Inception Institute of Artificial Intelligence (IIAI) from June 2019 to April 2021.

I am interested in computer vision and machine learning problems. Typically, I am working on (1) Person Re-identification; (2) Image/video generation (3) Action recognition; and (4) Neural rendering.
