About Me (curriculum vitae)


I am a second-year Ph.D. student in Graduate School of Information Science and Technology at The University of Tokyo, supervised by Prof. Yoichi Sato.

Before coming to UTokyo, I received my M.S. degree in 2018 from National Taiwan University and B.E. degree in 2016 from Donghua University. I was a researcher in SenseTime and algorithm consultant in ULSee. I also did research internships at Microsoft Research Asia, Tencent AI Lab, and MMLAB of SIAT.

My research interest mainly lies in computer vision, deep learning and focus on face analysis, active learning, and few-shot learning. I am fortunate to work closely with Dr. Zhanpeng Zhang, Dr. Zhifeng Li, Dr. Yu Qiao and Yandong Wen
