I’m currently a research scientist & PI at Shanghai AI Laboratory and Deputy Director of R&D at Sensetime Technology Ltd.. I am leading a research team containg over 20 talented researchers & interns at Shanghai AI Lab, aiming at designing an automated data pipeline to enhance the data-driven Autonomous Driving development. Additionally, I also lead a R&D team containing over 30 talented engineers at Sensetime, developing the RoboX Autonomous Products.

I obtained my Ph.D. from The Chinese University of Hong Kong in May, 2020 supervised by Prof. Xiaogang Wang and Prof. Xiaoou Tang. I got my bachelor’s degrees of Electronic Engineering and Economics in Tsinghua University in 2016. I worked as an research intern at Microsoft Research Asia (MSRA) and Facebook Reality Labs (Now Meta Reality Labs) during my Ph.D. years.

Research interest: 3D Scene Reconstruction, 3D Scene Perception, Behavior & Scene Simulation, any Autonomous-Driving-related topic.

***Important***  Our team is searching for highly self-motivated interns / full-time employees / post-docs . If you are interested in solving the industrial problem in an academic way, do not hesitate to contact me.
