Tencent Youtu Lab  | Nov. 2019 - Present

• Do the research about Network Architecture Search (NAS) especially its application on object detection, face detection.

Advisor: Jian Li, Yabiao Wang

Arcsoft  | Mar. 2019 - Sep. 2019

• Studied the commonly used noise models of camera, managed to generate sRGB training dataset as similar as possible to the real-world data, and developed a software to yield noisy images for image denoising and super resolution tasks.

• Investigated and studied the learning based image denoising algorithms especially for burst of images and videos, and improved them for the better generalization to real-world noisy images.

Advisor: Kai Chen

Govion  | Jun. 2018 - Jan. 2019

• Based on the traditional image processing algorithms, designed and developed the core algorithms for detecting defects of LCD and OLED panels, such as MURA, bubble, color edges, and so on.

• Some algorithms have been applied on the products.
