I am currently a senior researcher at the Noah's Ark Lab, Huawei Inc. My research interests include Computer Vision, Multimedia Information Retrieval and Machine Learning. I have a lot of research work on generic image classification, image retrieval and other vision problems. Recently, I have been working on deep learning, especially the models based on the Convolutional Neural Network (CNN). Recently, I am particularly interested in automated machine learning and its applications.
Before I joined Huawei, I obtained my B.E. and Ph.D. degrees from Tsinghua University, under the supervision of Prof. Bo Zhang and Prof. Qi Tian from University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA). I also served as a research intern at Microsoft Research Asia (MSRA), under the supervision of Dr. Jingdong Wang. After gaining my Ph.D. degree, I spent three years as a post-doctoral researcher at the Computational Cognition, Vision, and Learning (CCVL) under the supervision of Prof. Alan L. Yuille. Our lab was located at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), and then moved to the Johns Hopkins University (JHU).
