About Me

I am currently an associate professor with Center of Future Media & School of Computer Science and Engineering, University of Electronic of Science and Technology of China (UESTC), China. I received the B.E. and M.E. degrees from Huazhong University of Science and Technology, China, in 2009 and 2012, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree from Kyushu University, Japan, in 2015. Before joining UESTC, I worked as a Research Technician at Kyushu University (2015-2016).

My research interests mainly focus on multimedia information retrieval, especially cross-modal retrieval and knowledge transfer in integrating language and vision. I have published 70+ academic papers (30+ in CVPR, ACM MM, AAAI, TIP, TMM, TCYB, etc). I have served as reviewer for top conferences such as CVRP, ICCV, ACM MM, AAAI and top journals such as IEEE TIP, TNNLS, TMM, TCYB, leading guest editor for Journal of Visual Communication and Image Representation. I am the recipient of the Best Paper Award at ACM MM 2017, the World's FIRST 10K Best Paper Award - Platinum Award at IEEE ICME 2017, the Best Paper Award at ISAIR 2020 and IEEE Multimedia Prize Paper Award 2020. In 2019, I received the Outstanding Young Researcher Award from the IEEE Computer Society, Special Technical Committee on Big Data.
