I am currently a final-year PhD candidate on video understanding under the supervision of Prof. Cees Snoek, in the VIS Lab, University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
Previously, I worked as a visiting researcher under the supervision of Prof. Ling Shao in the Artificial Intelligence Lab, School of Computing Sciences, University of East Anglia, UK. And from 2015 to 2016, I worked in Panasonic R&D Center Singapore and visited the Learning and Vision Group, ECE, National University of Singapore. I received my Master's Degree and Bachelor's Degree under the supervision of Prof. Maoguo Gong in the Department of Electronic Engineering, XiDian University, China.
I'm interested in computer vision and deep learning. During my PhD, I am mainly focusing on video understanding, specifically video action detection, action recognition, video object segmentation. I am also excited about getting inspiration from classical signal/image processing methodologies for addressing some basic problems in deep learning. Besides, I have worked on image colorization, face recognition/detection/aligment, and change detection.
We propose a novel set-to-set (S2S) distance measure to calculate the similarity between two sets with the aim to improve the recognition accuracy for faces with real-world challenges, such as extreme poses or severe illumination conditions.
