I'm an associate professor of computer science at Fudan University since Nov 2017. Prior to this, I was a research fellow at Institut TELECOM SudParis from 2009 to 2010, a lecturer at University of Technology Sydney (UTS) from 2011 to 2013, and a senior research scientist of machine learning at CSIRO's Data61 (formerly NICTA) from 2013 to 2017. I received my PhD degree in computer science from Fudan University in 2009.

My research interests lie in machine learning, Bayesian nonparametrics and computational cognitive science, particularly in complex data (e.g., relational, structured, and streaming) representation, modeling and inference.


I am seeking PhD students interested in foundational problems at the intersection of deep latent variable models and visual intelligence.


My latest publications and some selected research topics are listed below. The full list of my publications can be found here.

Latest Publications (not elsewhere classified)

Some of my students and team alumni are listed below. The full list of my students can be found here.
I was external PhD supervisor at UTS, USyd and UNSW when I worked for NICTA/CSIRO in Australia.
