Deep Learning Researcher

I am currently a research scientist at ByteDance, focusing on applying machine learning and computer vision techniques in Bytedance AI products. Before that, I was a research scientist at Intel Labs.

[Hiring!] Recruiting scientists, engineers, and research/engineering interns in machine learning or computer vision at Beijing, Shanghai and Hangzhou. Feel free to contact me !
