About me

  • I am a principal scientist in Reconova. My research interest lies in face recognition, facial analysis and synthesis, object detection, metric learning, model compression/acceleration and semi-supervised learning etc.
  • Our company is a leading artificaial intelligence startup in China, which focuses on cutting-edge visual perception total solutions. There are lots of full-time and intern positions enthused about deep learning and computer vision. Contact me at the above email address.
  • Previously, I was a Research Engineer at Center for Research on Intelligent Perception and Computing (CRIPAC), Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CASIA), worked closely with Prof. Ran He and Prof. Zhenan Sun. Before that I received the B.E. and M.S. degrees in electronic engineering from the University of Science and Technology Beijing in 2013 and 2016, respectively.
