About Me

I received the PhD degree in Pattern Recognition and Intelligent Systems from the Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CASIA) in 2009 under the supervision of Prof. Tieniu Tan. From 2009 to 2010, I was a research fellow working with Prof. Dacheng Tao at the School of Computer Science and Engineering, Nanyang Technological University (NTU). In September 2010, I joined the National Laboratory of Pattern Recognition (NLPR), CASIA. Currently, I am an Associate Professor at the Center for Research on Intelligent Perception and Computing (CRIPAC).

Since Jan. 2019, I am working as a visiting researcher under the direction of Prof. Song-Chun Zhu’s in the Center for Vision, Cognition, Learning, and Autonomy (VCLA) lab at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).

Research Interests

My research field is computer vision and pattern recognition. The main research interests include human action and activity recognition, human attribute recognition, person re-identification, and large-scale person retrieval.
