Biography

I received my Ph.D. degree at the Robotics Institute (RI), Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) in 2017. Before that, I obtained the B. Eng. degree from South China University of Technology (SCUT) in 2012.

I was an ACM-ICPCer and had participted in lots of programming contests when I was an undergradudate. The learned programming skills and algorithms related to computer science and maths built a strong foundation for my following acadamic career. I started to work on image processing, video coding, and signal processing after joining the Multimedia Technology Research Center (MTrec) supervised by Prof. Oscar C. Au (IEEE Fellow). I began to serve as an intern for DJI at the end of 2013, where I developed the sensing algorithms which fly the DJI drones. During the internship, I was touched by the magic of computer vision and robotics. I decided to go further into these topics in my acadamic career and joined the Prof. Shaojie Shen's UAV group, where I worked on visual odometry, mapping, 3D reconstruction, visual-inertial fusion, SLAM, and autonomous navigation.

[News] I am now a senior researcher in Robotics X, Tencent. A few intern positions are available for talented Ph.D. and Master students. Please contact me via my email if you are interested and self-motivated to do cutting-edge work.
