Biography

I am a 4th year Ph.D student at VISICS group of KU Leuven starting from 2016 fall. I am working with Prof. Luc Van Gool. Prior to this, I obtained my Master's and Bachelor's degree from Peking University and South China University of Technology, respectively. My research goal is to develop self-learning AI system. Currently, I am working on image synthesis, self-supervised feature learning, and scene understanding.
