I am a researcher at Adobe. I obtained the Ph.D. degree at University of California Merced, working with Prof. Ming-Hsuan Yang. Before that, I received the M.S. degree at Shanghai Jiao Tong University and B.S. degree at Zhejiang University.

My research interests lie in the field of computer vision and machine learning, particularly in image and video synthesis. The goal of my work is to develop effective computational models to facilitate more realistic and stunning creations, which will bring brand new user experiences and transform the ways we communicate and collaborate. I have been awarded Facebook Fellowship (2019), Adobe Fellowship (2018), and Snap Fellowship (2018).

Internship: Adobe Research is offering internships for self-motivated graduate students to engage in industrial research and routinely publish at top academic conferences. Please drop me an email with your resume if you're interested in working with me.
