BIOGRAPHY:

I am a postdoc researcher with Australia Center for Robotic Vision at The University of Adelaide. I am working with Prof. Chunhua Shen and Prof. Ian ReidI am also closely working with Prof. Anton van den Hengel.Prior to that, I completed my Ph.D. study at Shanghai Jiao Tong University under the supervision of Prof. Xiaokang Yang in 2016. During the fall of 2013 to the fall of 2015, I was supported by China Scholarship Council and working with Prof. Ming-Husan Yang as a joint-training Ph.D. student in University of California at Merced. I received B. E. and M. E. from University of Electronic Science and Technology of China in 2008 and 2011 respectively. 

I am interested in computer vision and machine learning problems. Typically, I am working on (1) Visual question answering; (2) Visual object tracking; (3)Single-image super-resolution; and (4) Sketch image retrieval (recognition).


News:

  • One paper "Video Segmentation via Multiple Granularity Analysis" is accepted by CVPR 2017
  • Our work "learning a no-reference quality metric for single-image super resolution" will appear in CVIU
