I am currently a lead researcher at MSRA. I received my BS degree from Tsinghua University in 2007, and my PhD degree from CUHK in 2011. I was an intern at MSRA from 2007 to 2011. I joined the visual computing group of MSRA in 2011. My first paper won the CVPR best paper award in 2009. My ECCV 2010 work on Guided Image Filtering has been included in official MATLAB and official OpenCV. I received the outstanding reviewer awards in CVPR 2015 and ICCV 2015. My current research focus is on deep learning for visual recognition, including image classification, object detection, and semantic segmentation.

Internship Opening: I am looking for interns with backgrounds on deep learning and outstanding coding skills.

 

News - We released the code & models of ResNet-50, ResNet-101, and ResNet-152 on ImageNet.

News - ILSVRC & COCO competitions 2015: we won the 1st places in ImageNet classification, ImageNet detection, ImageNet localization, COCO detection, and COCO segmentation! arXiv  slides  code & models

 

I serve as Area Chair for CVPR 2016.

I co-organized a Tutorial on Object Detection at ICCV 2015. slides
