Biography

I started as an Vice Chancellor assistant professor at the Department of Information Engineering, the Chinese University of Hong Kong in Novermber of 2022. If you are excited about computational photography, computer vision, computer graphics, and machine learning, please contact for potential full-funded Ph.D., master, postdoc, R.A., and intern positions available.

I received my Ph.D. from MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, under the supervision of William T. Freeman. Before that, I received my Master of Philosophy in the Information Engineering Department, The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2011, under the supervised of Prof. Xiaoou Tang and Prof. Jianzhuang Liu. I also received my B.E. degree in the Computer Science and Technology Department from Tsinghua University, China, in 2009. Here is my Curriculum Vitae [PDF].
