I am a professor with Shenzhen Institutes of Advanced Technology Chinese Academy of Sciences, where I co-direct the Multimedia Research Center. I am a Youth Science and Technology Innovation Leader elected by Ministry of Science and Technology China and a Pengcheng Distinguished Professor elected by Shenzhen Municipal Government. I received the "Lu Jiaxi Young Researcher Award" from the Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2012.

I had been a project assistant professor in Graduate School of Information Science and Technology , The University of Tokyo, Japan. I received the Bachelor Eng. in Automation and Master Eng. degree in Control Theory and Engineering from Chongqing University in 2000 and 2003, respectively. I received the Ph.D from the University of Electro-Communications, Tokyo, Japan.

My research interests include Computer Vision, Deep Learning, Speech Processing, Multimedia, Intelligent Robotics etc. Recently, we focuses on develop novel deep learning techniques for action recognition, scene understanding, facial analysis and recognition, object detection with applications in surveillance, robotics and human-machine interface. Our ultimate goal is to enable machine to perceive and understand complex visual scenes like human.
