I am now a ZJU Young100 Professor with the College of Computer Science at Zhejiang University. Before that, I was a Research Scientist (Project Leader) at Zhejiang Lab. Previously, I was a postdoctoral research fellow at the Chinese University of Hong Kong working with Prof. Jiaya Jia and Prof. Bei Yu. Recently, I am also a co-founder of RealityEdge which combines Large Model with Interaction for creative works.

I obtained my Ph.D. degree in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, supervised by Prof. Jiaya Jia and Prof. Bei Yu. During Ph.D. and postdoc life, I have spent wonderful times in collaborating with academics at the university (e.g., Prof. Chi-Wing Fu at CUHK, Prof. Yingcong Chen at HKUST, Prof. Hengshuang Zhao at HKU, Prof. Philip H. S. Torr at Oxford, Prof. Antonio Torralba at MIT, Prof. Christian Theobalt and Dr. Thomas Leimkuehler at Max Planck Institute for Informatics), and researchers in the industrial community (Dr. Jiangbo Lu and Dr. Nianjuan Jiang at SmartMore, Dr. Ning Xu at Adobe Research, Dr. Vibhav Vineet at Microsoft Research). Before that, I obtained my B.E. degree in the Information Engineering at College of Information Science and Electronic Engineering, Zhejiang University.

Several specific topics of our current research interests and focus:
1. Generative Computational Photography: large model and efficiency optimization;
2. Multi-modality data (image, video, 3D, etc.) generation & manipulation via AIGC;
3. Multi-modality large understanding model;
4. Security and alignment for large models/AGI.
If you are interested in working with me, please feel free to contact me through the email.

My ultimate goal is to maximize the value of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in creation, helping everyone to express and share their ideas. Meanwhile, I also want to employ AI to protect our society, making human living in harmony with AI.
