Research Scientist @ Facebook Reality Labs
Contact: zju.caochen at gmail.com
I am a Research Scientist at Facebook Reality Labs Pittsburgh. I was a Senior Research Scientist at Snap. I obtained the PhD from Zhejiang University(ZJU), supervised by Prof. Kun Zhou. I was a student member of Graphics and Parallel Systems Lab. I received my B. Eng. degree from College of Computer Science & Technology, Zhejiang University in 2010. My research concentrates on computer graphics.
[2019.07.08] Have my first day at Facebook.
[2019.05.09] Our paper "Efficient Neural Networks for Real-time Motion Style Transfer" is accepted by SCA 2019
[2018.08.11] Our paper "Stabilized Real-time Face Tracking via a Learned Dynamic Rigidity Prior" is conditionally accepted by Siggraph Asia 2018
[2016.06.20] Have my first day at Snapchat.
[2016.04.25] Our paper "Real-Time Facial Animation with Image-based Dynamic Avatars" is conditionally accepted by Siggraph 2016.
[2016.03.31] I won the Excellent Graduate Student honor of Zhejiang Province.
[2015.10.20] I will move to USA in 2016, and will become a Research Scientist in Snapchat.
[2015.10.15] I won the 2015 Chu Kochen Scholarship, the highest scholarship of ZJU, 12 awardees from all 5000+ graduate students.
My research interest is computer graphics, especially for facial animation:
3D face expression database for virtual computing
Real-time facial animation with single camera
Facial image/video editing
