I am a researcher in the Multimedia Search & Mining group at Microsoft Research Asia (MSRA) in Beijing.
My research interest is to explore the novel and practical problems in the era of big data and multimedia, using machine learning and data driven technologies. The projects I am working on include web image retrieval and annotation, image understanding, sketch-based image search, sketch/shape understanding, etc.
