Research Domains



Computer Vision
Machine Learning

My research interests lie in the broad field of computer vision and its combination with various machine learning algorithms. Especially, with the magic leap on improving the model capacities brought by the recent renaissance of deep learning techniques, I focus on applying deep-learning-based models on learning the visual perception, discovering the semantic representations and modelling the underlying generative procedure of visual data, and performing image/video editing or synthesis.
