About Me

I'm currently a Postdoctoral Research Scientist at MReaL Lab, Nanyang Technological University from 2022, working with Prof. Hanwang Zhang. I obtained my Ph.D. at Nanyang Technological University in 2022, advised by Prof. Hanwang Zhang as well. Prior to the Ph.D., I received B.E. degree in Computer Science from IEEE honor class at Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) in 2015, and dual-master degree in Computer Science from the joint programme of SJTU and Waseda University in 2018, advised by Prof. Seiichiro Kamata and Prof. Lizhuang Ma.
My research mainly focuses on learning unbiased models against the distribution shift in computer vision, vision & language, incremental learning, noise identification, etc. As a previous game engineer, my lifelong dream is to (1) use machine learning to create something fun, (2) build interactive, personalized, and engaging NPC that can be used to enable an immersive virtual world. If you feel that I can help with your related projects, please don't hesitate to contact me.

I'm currently on the job market. I would appreciate a ping if you see a job I might fit.

This project aims to build a new CODEBASE for Scene Graph Generation (SGG), and it is also a Pytorch implementation of the paper "Unbiased Scene Graph Generation from Biased Training". It is built on top of the well-known maskrcnn-benchmark and defines relationship prediction as an additional roi_head. Moreover, I included all the exsiting metrics: R@K, mR@K, ngR@K, zR@K, to benchmark the SGG.
This project provides a strong single-stage baseline for Long-Tailed Classification (under ImageNet-LT, Long-Tailed CIFAR-10/-100 datasets), Detection, and Instance Segmentation (under LVIS dataset). It is also a PyTorch implementation of the NeurIPS 2020 paper Long-Tailed Classification by Keeping the Good and Removing the Bad Momentum Causal Effect. This project can be easily generalized to other tasks with unbalanced datasets.
An open-source visual question answering (VQA) CODEBASE built on top of the bottom-up-attention-vqa. It integrates several popular VQA papers published in 2018, which includes: bottom-up top-down, bilinear attention network, learning to count, learning conditioned graph structures, intra- and inter-modality attention.
Indie Game Development
Out of interest, I independently developed several mobile games on Iphone. They have been downloaded over 10k times on Apple store in half a year.
