👨‍💻 About Me

I am an Associate Professor in College of Computer Science, Nankai University. Prior to joining Nankai University, I was a senior algorithm engineer in Alibaba Group. I obtained my Ph.D. from Nanyang Technological University in 2019, under the supervision of Prof. Weisi Lin. I also spent one wonderful year with a joint PhD program in Technische Universität Darmstadt, under the supervision of Prof. Michael Goesele.

My research focuses on visual localization, autonomous driving, SLAM, 3D reconstruction, etc.
