About Me

I am a big fan of Artificial Intelligence. I believe that one-day robots will help the human in all our daily lives.

I am currently a research scientist at DeepMind. My research interests are self-supervised multi-modal disentangled representation learning, i.e. self-supervised video object segmentation with multi-view observations and camera motion.

Previously, I was a research scientist at Baidu Research from 2013 to 2018. I obtained my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science at UC Irvine in 2013. I had summer internships at Google and Microsoft Research. I obtained my master degree in Industrial Engineering at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in 2008, and bachelor degree in Automation at Tsinghua University in 2006.
