I am a computer vision researcher working on video related technologies: video processing & quality enhancement, AR & special effects, 3D reconstruction, object detection & segmentation, and content 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) for Visual data Modeling and Analysis. I got my PhD degree from National University of Singapore, working with Prof. Michael S. Brown. My thesis has won the IDA medal (best thesis award) of year 2016.
