I am currently an Associate Professor in Tsinghua UniversityTsinghua-Berkeley Shenzhen Institute (TBSI). I received my Ph.D from HKUST in 2011, and B.E. from USTC in 2007. I used to spend 6 months in Prof. ggelos K. Katsaggelos's lab in Northwestern University during the best season of Evanston in 2010, and I spent 8 months in Microsoft Research Asia (Beijing) with the host of Prof. Feng Wu in 2013. Later, I visited Prof. Eckehard Steinbach's group in Technical University of Munich (TUM) in 2014, supported by “Humboldt Research Fellowship for Experienced Researchers”.

Our team has always been interested in looking for practical problems and solutions. Along with understanding the real-world using fancy computer vision techniques ("post-processing"), we believe that the revolution in imaging/sensing ("pre-processing") plays equally important role. Aiming for comprehensive, high-resolution, and realistic imaging/sensing of large-scale dynamic scenes, our work relates to Gigapixel Videography, Multi-Camera Array, Multiview 3D Reconstruction, 4D Lightfield Reconstruction etc., towards both the online hardware system and real-time algorithmic solutions.
