Biography

I am a researcher and tech leader in Baidu Research in Sunnyvale, where I lead a team with 10+ members working on Fine-Grained Object Recognition. I also spend some time working on Perception for Autonomous Driving.

Before I was a researcher working in the Media Analytics group, NEC Lab at Cupertino. In 2014, I received the PhD in Robotics from Carnegie Mellon University, where I worked with Dr. Fernando de la Torre in the Human Sensing Lab. During my PhD study, I did two internships, one at Adobe's Advanced Technology Labs at San Jose, and the other in Interactive Visual Media group, Microsoft Research at Redmond.

My research is in the area of computer vision and machine learning. I am passionate in developing computational methods that can understand multi-modal data (e.g., image, video, motion capture, depth data) in the wild. Motivated by this goal, I have been working on the projects on Fine-Grained Object Recognition, Graph Matching, Temporal Clustering of Human Behavior, Temporal Alignment of Human Motion, Facial Event Discovery, Facial Landmark Localization, Human Pose Estimation and Time Mapping & Video Saliency.
