My current mission is to setup and run Megvii (Face++) Research US, a new AI research lab based in Seattle. Before that, I spent more than nine years as a Principal Scientist at Adobe Research. My primary research interests include computational photography and videography, image and video processing, advanced computer graphics and vision techniques for better user experiences. My past research has been transferred into various Adobe products such as Photoshop, Photoshop Touch, After Effects and Premiere. Please go to my tech transfer page to see the complete list of my tech transfers.
I got my Ph.D. from the University of Washington at Seattle in October 2007, where I spent four years and enjoyed both my research and the great northwest very much. While in school I primarily worked with Michael Cohen at Microsoft Research, on a variety of projects related to foreground segmentation, matting , and stylization in images and video. Before joining UW I got my bachelor and master degrees from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China. I spent 2004, 2005 and 2006 summers at Microsoft Research Redmond working as a research intern. I also worked as an intern from 2002 to 2003 at Microsoft Research Asia.
We are looking for both full time researchers and interns! You should definitely talk to me if you are passionated about not only doing world-class research, but also building world-class AI products and services. My contact info is here.
