I am currently a computer vision lead at ByteDance/TikTok, Singapore and also holding an appointment as an adjunct assistant professor at the National University of Singapore. Before that, I was a research fellow at the University of Oxford, and a member of Torr Vision Group (TVG) working with Prof. Philip H.S. Torr. I serve as an Associate Editor of Pattern Recognition and Guest Editor of IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence.

[Hiring!] Actively recruiting scientists, engineers, research interns, and engineering interns in China and Singapore. Feel free to contact me!
