I am a senior research scientist at Tencent. My research focuses on computer vision: video processing & quality enhancement, AR & special effects, 3D reconstruction, object detection & segmentation, and video understanding. I was with Blackmagic Design in 2016-2019, working on cool features in Emmy™ award winning tool DaVinci Resolve. During 2015 to 2016, I worked at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) Advanced Digital Sciences Center (ADSC) on Visual data Modeling and Analysis project. I got my PhD degree from National University of Singapore, working with Prof. Michael S. Brown. I am winner of Singapore IDA medal of year 2016.
