A Short Bio

I am a senior research scientist in NVIDIA Research. My current research focuses on deep learning for low-level and middle-level computer vision, visual SLAM, 3D reconstruction, and multi-camera systems. From August 2010 to June 2013, I was an assistant professor at the Munsell Color Science Laboratory in Center for Imaging Science in Rochester Institute of Technology. From November 2013 to October 2015, I was a senior researcher in the media lab (New Jersey Office) at Futurewei Technologies (aka, Huawei R&D USA) in Bridgewater, NJ. I obtained a Ph.D. in Spring 2010 in the Computer Science Department of Columbia University with Prof. Shree Nayar, Prof. Peter Belhumeur, and Prof. Ravi Ramamoorthi, and I got a B.S. and M.S. (supervised by Prof. Jie Zhou) in the Department of Automation in Tsinghua University, China, in 2002 and 2005 respectively. My general research interests are computer vision, machine learning, and computational imaging. Here is a copy of my CV.
