Computational Imaging Lab, Stanford


I’m a postdoc at the Computational Imaging Lab in Stanford University working with Professor Gordon Wetzstein. My area of research lies in applying machine learning techniques, especially deep learning, to challenging image and geometry processing problems.

I obtained my PhD from the Interactive Geometry Lab at ETH Zurich under the supervision of Prof. Olga Sorkine-Hornung. During my PhD study, I have had the honour to work at the Advanced Innovation Center for Future Visual Entertainment (AICFVE) in Beijing Film Academy, the Imaging and Video group at Disney Research Zurich, the Creative Intelligence Lab at Adobe Research in Seattle, and the vision group at DeepMind.

Born and raised in Beijing, I went to Technische Universität München in Germany for study, where I obtained Bachelor of Science with distinction in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology.

Afterwards I went to ETH Zurich in Switzerland, where I completed with the Master program Robotics, Systems and Control with distinction.
