Biography

Ying-Cong Chen is an Assistant Professor at AI Thrust, Information Hub of Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (Guangzhou Campus). He is also an Affiliated Assistant Professor of the department of Computer Science & Engineering (Clear Water Bay Campus). He is a faculty member of the Deep Vision Lab. He was a Postdoctoral Associate at Computer Science & Artificial Intelligence Lab of Massachusetts Institute of Technology, working with Prof. Dina Katabi. He obtained his Ph.D. degree from the Chinese University of Hong Kong, working with Prof. Jiaya Jia. His research lies in the broad area of computer vision and machine learning, aiming for empowering machine with the capacity to understand human appearance, physiology and psychology. His works contribute to a wide range of applications, including contactless health monitoring, semantic photo synthesis, and intelligent video surveillance.

Update:

I am looking for talented students to work with on innovative computer vision and machine learning projects. PhD/RA/Postdoc positions are available. The salaries will be highly competitive. Please drop me an email if you are interested.

The Guangzhou campus is a new campus of HKUST, focusing on interdisciplinary research. We will make a great difference to both academia and society. For those who want to know more about this new campus, please visit this link (in Chinese) for a brief introduction.
