Biography

I am the algorithm head at ZMO.AI and lead the R&D team for AIGC. I obtained my PhD degree at VISICS group of KU Leuven supervised by Prof. Luc Van Gool. Before this, I obtained my Master's and Bachelor's degree from Peking University and South China University of Technology. My research goal is to develop a creative self-learning AI system. Currently, I am working on image/video understanding and synthesis. Please contact me if you are interested in collaboration or internship/fulltime positions.
