I am a staff scientist / research manager at Alibaba DAMO Academy. Previously, I was a faculty member in Fudan University, and a senior researcher in Tencent AI Lab. I got my PhD/Mphil degrees from City University of Hong Kong during which I visited Adobe Research and UC Merced, and got my bachelor degree from University of Science and Technology of China. Currently, my research interest resides in multi-modality AI, from both model-centric and data-centric perspectives, with applications centered around computer vision. I have been elected among Top 2% Scientists worldwide by Stanford University.
