Biography

I will join Westlake University (AI) as a tenure-track Assistant Professor in Spring 2025, and lead 远兮实验室 (endless.do) as PI.

I am currently a final Year Ph.D. student (2020.11 - Now), working in Perceiving Systems, Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems (MPI-IS), with Michael J. Black and Dimitrios Tzionas. As a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellow (MSCA) of CLIPE (ESR 11), I work on Democratizing Human-centric Digitization in computer vision, computer graphics and machine learning.

I was briefly enrolled (2019.9-2020.10) as a Ph.D. student in Vision and Graphics Lab at University of Southern California, advised by Hao Li. I got M.Sc. degree at Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2019, working in Machine Vision and Intelligence Group, advised by Cewu Lu, and got B.Eng. degree in Digital Media Technology at Shandong University in 2016, worked closely with Lu Wang.

I spent wonderful time at USC Institute for Creative Technology with Jun Xing, at Kwai Y-tech with Chongyang Ma, at LightChaser Animation Studio with Xinxin Zhang, and at Ubisoft La Forge. I will intern at Meta Reality Labs next summer with Shunsuke Saito.
