About Me

I am a Senior Research Lead with Wormpex AI Research working on AI in Retail. My R&D experience covers Computer Vision, Deep Learning, and Robotics. Before that I was an Algorithm Scientist with Aibee and a Research Scientist with Adobe Research. I obtained my Ph.D degree from Stevens Institute of Technology, advised by Dr. Gang Hua. Before that I obtained my B.E. degree from the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in 2010.
