About me

Shaohui Lin is currently a Researcher and a Zijiang Young Scholar in the School of Computer Science and Technology, East China Normal University (ECNU). I received Ph.D. from Xiamen University under the supervision of Prof. Rongrong Ji. After that, I joint the Department of Computer Science at National University of Singapore as a postdoc researcher, working with Angela Yao. . My research specialty is computer vision, machine learning and deep learning, especially compression and speeding-up of large capacity models.
