Linjie Yang

I am currently a Research Scientist at ByteDance Inc. in Mountain View, CA. Before that, I was a Research Scientist at Snap Research during 2016 - 2018. I obtained my PhD degree in the department of Information Engineering, Chinese University of Hong Kong in July 2016. I was supervised by Prof. Xiaoou Tang and Prof. Jianzhuang Liu. I also worked closely with Prof. Chen Change Loy and Ping Luo. I obtained my bachelor's degree from the department of Electronic Engineering, Tsinghua University in 2012. I worked as a research intern in Microsoft Research Asia from November 2011 to April 2012. My research interests include computer vision and machine learning, especially visual understanding with deep learning.

We are actively looking for full-time research scientists / engineers as well as research interns on computer vision and deep learning. Drop me an email if you are interested!
