About

I am a postdoctoral researcher in Max-Planck-Institut für Informatik advised by Prof. Karol Myszkowski. I was luckily to be a visiting scholar at University of Cambridge, working with Prof. Rafał Mantiuk. I obtained my Ph.D. in School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong co-advised by Prof. Miu-Ling LAM and Prof. Hongbo FU. Prior to this, I was an intern in Shenzhen Institutes of Advanced Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences (SIAT, CAS). I received my master degree in Mechanical and Automation Engineering at Harbin Institute of Technology, Shenzhen (HIT, SZ) in 2014.

My research centers in visual media, specifically, computational photography, image processing, computational display, and perception.

I will be joining School of Computing and Information Systems, The University of Melbourne as a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in 2024. I am looking for self-motivated Ph.D. students (2 positions). Feel free to drop me an email if you are interested.
