About Me ([CV] [ DBLP ] [ Google Scholar])

I am a Ph.D. student in the Intelligent Behaviour Understanding Group (IBUG) at Imperial College London (ICL), supervised by Stefanos Zafeiriou and funded by the Imperial President's PhD Scholarships. I am in the project of EPSRC FACER2VM (Face Matching for Automatic Identity Retrieval, Recognition, Verification and Management). My Ph.D. research topic is face analysis.

Before coming to IBUG, I obtained my master and bachelor degrees from Nanjing University of Information Science and Technology. During my master study, I was with the BDAT Lab under the supervision of Prof. Qingshan Liu, and I worked closely with Prof. Dacheng Tao.

News

  • 2018-01-23: I have launched a 2D and 3D face analysis project named InsightFace, which aims at providing better, faster and smaller face analysis algorithms with public available training data. Currently, we have achieved the state-of-the-art performance on MegaFace Challenge.
  • 2017-07-17: In the last three years, I have collected 20/43 yellow bars (10 in 2017, 5 in 2016 and 5 in 2015) from the ImageNet Large Scale Visual Recognition Challenge (ILSVRC). ImageNet Challenge is the most prestigious competition commonly known as the Olympics of computer vision.
