I am a researcher of Computer Vision and Robotics at the International Digital Economy Academy (IDEA). Previously, I obtained my Ph.D. degree from the department of Computer Science and Engineering, the Chinese University of Hong Kong, supervised by Prof. Qiang Xu. I was a visiting scholar in the Robotics Institute, Carnegie Mellon University.

Research interests: building perception-data-generation loops for human-centric tasks

1) Human-centric visual understanding and perception with large-scale data and general models, focusing on human pose estimation/reconstruction/animation, interactive annotation, and human neural rendering (e.g., OSX, DW-Pose, ED-Pose, SmoothNet, DeciWatch)

2) Human-centric large-scale image/motion generation and editing (e.g., Motion-X, HuMMan, HumanSD, Human-Art)

3) Time series analysis (e.g., LTSF-Linear, SCINet)

I'm looking for self-motivated interns at International Digital Economy Academy (IDEA). If you are interested in the above topics, please send me your resume by email.
