Biography

I am a Principal Researcher of Tencent AI Lab at Seattle, working on machine learning and computer vision. Before joining Tencent, I was a tenure-track Assistant Professor in University of Central Florida (UCF). My research in UCF was supported in part by an NSF CRII award (so-PI, received in 2016) and an NSF BIGDATA award (PI, received in 2017), both of which were the first of their kinds ever granted to UCF. I actively serve on NSF panels and the program committees of computer vision conferences (CVPR, ICCV, ECCV, etc.) and machine learning conferences (ICML, NIPS, AISTATS, etc.). I was an area chair of IEEE WACV'18 and a mentor of its PhD forum. In 2015, I received a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from the University of Southern California, where my work was partially supported by the Viterbi Fellowship.

Recent research interests: domain adaptation, reinforcement learning, and visual analytics of objects, human activities, scenes, and their attributes.
