Yu's Profile Picture

I am a Principal Researcher at International Digital Economy Academy (IDEA), heading the IDEA Vistring Lab. I was with Tencent ARC Lab from 2019 to 2021, Blackmagic Design from 2016 to 2019, and Advanced Digital Sciences Center from 2015 to 2016. I got my PhD degree from National University of Singapore, advised by Prof. Michael S Brown. I also hold an affilate appointment with the CSL Lab, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. My research interests are in the joint field of computer vision and computer graphics, especially computational photography.
