  • 14/07/2023: 🎉 Our paper "Multi-view Self-supervised Disentanglement for General Image Denoising" has been accepted by ICCV2023!



Full-Stack Engineer (Machine Learning)

  • Designed and developed a recommendation system and search engine for Vieunite Application that leveraged biophilic information in addition to regular metrics. The system achieved a 300% increase in click-through and purchase rates, resulting in a significant boost in revenue for the company.
  • Solely completed the Vieutopia back-end, an AI-generated artwork platform that utilizes text-to-image and image-to-image models. Optimized and trained the models to produce high-quality, aesthetically pleasing artwork, and implemented Knowledge Distillation to make inference faster and more efficient.
  • Designed the security architecture for Vieutopia to ensure the protection of user data and prevent unauthorized access to the platform, which has now garnered over 200,000 users as of March 2023.

Research Assistant

  • Conducted research on the interpretable modelling of hydrological models using machine learning techniques to improve accuracy while clearly describing their physical processes.
  • Utilized neural networks to search for more appropriate model connections to find unknown underlying patterns.
  • Collaborated with a team of researchers to analyze and interpret data and to develop innovative solutions for complex problems in the field of hydrology.

Algorithm Engineer - Intern

  • Developed a visual customer service anchor using machine learning to synchronize mouth movements with emotions and body language, particularly in the Chinese language context, and aligned with Asian pronunciation habits.
  • Optimized the customer service anchor model for mobile applications and collaborated with cross-functional teams to deploy the project in the China Mobile mobile app.
  • Collaborated with a team of researchers to analyze and interpret data and to develop innovative solutions for complex problems in the field of hydrology.

As a backend engineer , I spend most of my time coding and studying. However, when I'm not in front of a computer, I have several hobbies that also makes me happy.

One of my biggest passions is music . I am an amateur composer who has explored a variety of genres, including electric music in the past. These days, I am drawn to the rhythms and lyrics of rap, which I find endlessly inspiring. Creating music is a way for me to express myself creatively.

Another activity I have enjoyed since childhood is playing Go . Whenever I have free time, I like to set up a board and test my skills against friends or online opponents.

I also enjoy playing tennis 🎾. This is a great way for me to stay active and get some exercise while also having fun.

In my free time, I also like to explore the new techniques in the different fields. One of my favorite quotes is from Richard Feynman, who said, "What I cannot create, I do not understand." I believe that this curiosity and desire to learn helps me become a better engineer and a more well-rounded person.
