Short Bio

I am now an Associate Professor at Institute of Automation Chinese Academic of Sciences (CASIA). My research interest includes machine learning and pattern recognition, especially 3D face reconstruction, face recognition, and Explainable AI. I am awarded the “Young Biometrics Investigator Award (YBIA)” by the International Association of Pattern Recognition (IAPR) in 2023 (awarded biennially to one scholar under 40 worldwide). I won the Champion of the Face Recognition Challenges at WACV 2024 and ICCV 2017, CCBR Best Student Paper Award (2017), Best Poster Paper Award (2022), and Best Paper 1st Runner Up (2023). I have published more 80 papers with total citation in Google Scholar being 8700. I am an IEEE senior member and serve as the area chair for IJCB and ACM MM.
