I am a senior research director of Kuaishou Technology and an adjunct Professor of the Computer Science and Engineering Department of Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST). Kuaishou Technology is a China company which developed a mobile app for sharing users' short videos and video special effects editor. It has more than 300 million users in China. Before that, I was a research director (T14) of YouTu Lab of Tencent, China (Jan 2017 - Mar. 2020), a principal research scientist of SenseTime (Aug 2015 - Dec 2016), and an associate professor of School of Electrical Engineering at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) (Jul. 2009 - Aug. 2015). I received my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from the National University of Singapore (NUS) in 2009. From Sept 2007 to June 2008, I worked as a full-time student internship in Microsoft Research Asia (MSRA). I received the M.Phil and B.Eng (First Class Honors) degrees in Computer Science from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) in 2005 and 2003 respectively. I am a senior member of the IEEE.

My major research interests are in the broad areas of Computer vision and Machine learning, including low-level vision, segmentation, 3D reconstruction, human pose and video analysis. I am also recently interested in AIGC, multimodalities, large generative pre-trained models and their applications.
