About Me

I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Science at The University of Hong Kong, supervised by Prof. Kenneth K.Y. Wong. Prior to studying at HKU, I received my B.Eng. in 2016 from Sun Yat-sen University, China. I am currently a research intern in Osaka University, Japan, supervised by Prof. Yasuyuki Matsushita. My research interests are in computer vision and machine learning. Specifically, learning based methods for 3D vision, physics-based vision, environment matting, etc.


[Mar 2019]  One paper has been accepted as an oral paper in CVPR 2019. Our code has been released!
[Feb 2019]  I will be a research intern at Osaka University in Japan from June to November, 2019!
