About Me

I am a senior undergraduate at Peking University, double major in Computer Science and Economics, advised by Prof. Yizhou Wang. I also work at CUHK-SenseTime Joint Multimedia Laboratory, mentored by Prof. Bolei Zhou and Wayne Wu. I visited Prof. Bo Li's group at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign for the past summer. In 2018, I studied at Stanford as a visiting student.

My research interest primarily lies in computer vision and human-centered computing. Recently, I work on bridging the gap between machine and human, with a focus on learning structured representations.

We present a lightweight video motion retargeting approach that is capable of disentangling the three orthogonal factors of variation, including motion, structure, and view-angle. The proposed method can be trained on 2D in-the-wild data in an unsupervised manner and shows superior performance over state-of-the-art methods.

In my spare time, I read, travel, cook, listen to music, and play basketball.

Besides Chinese Mandarin, Wu(native) and English, I learned Cantonese in Hong Kong and am learning French currently.
