About me

I was working as a postdoc reseacher at Visual Geometry Group, University of Oxford, with Prof. Alison Noble and Prof. Andrew Zisserman on Medical Image/Video Analysis. I am a joint Assistant Professor at Chinese Academy of Sciences, working closely with Dr. Yu Qiao at Chinese Academy of Sciences, and Prof. Xiaoou Tang at the Chinese University of Hongkong. I was a Research Intern at Adobe Research, working with Dr. Jue Wang, Dr. Zhe Lin, and Dr. Jianchao Yang. My research interests are in computer vision and deep learning, including scene text detection and recognition, medical image analysis, object detection and image classification.

I got my PhD degree from the University of Manchester, UK, under the supervision of Dr. Hujun Yin in 2013. I received my M.Sc and B.Sc degrees from the University of Surrey, UK and the Unviersity of Shandong, China, respecticvely.
