About Me ([GitHub] [Google Scholar] [CV])

I am a Research Scientist at Shanghai AI Laboratory, collaborated with Prof. Jifeng Dai and Prof. Yu Qiao

Previously, I obtained the Ph.D. degree from Department of Computer Science and Technology, Nanjing University (NJU) in 2021. My academic supervisor is Prof. Tong Lu. I received my B.E degree from Nanjing University of Science and Technology (NUST) in 2016.
I work very close with my friends Dr. Enze Xie and Prof. Xiang Li. I was fortunate to work with Prof. Ping Luo and Prof. Chunhua Shen.

My recent works are mainly on:
The fundamental vision department at Shanghai AI Laboratory is now hiring. If you are interested in internship/researcher positions related to computer vision, please feel free to contact me through the email.
