Yu's Profile Picture

I am a Principal Researcher at International Digital Economy Academy (IDEA), where I lead IDEA's Vistring Lab and focus on video content generation and editing. Prior to joining IDEA, I worked at Tencent ARC Lab, and Blackmagic Design. I hold a PhD degree from National University of Singapore, advised by Prof. Michael S Brown. I was a PostDoc Researcher at UIUC. I am also an adjunct professor at the South China University of Technology.
