English name is Jason. I have joint
SUN YAT-SEN University since Jan. 2011 under the
one-hundred-people program. And I have been a full
professor since Jan. 2016. I have been a Deputy Director
of Key Laboratory of Machine Intelligence and Advanced
Computing, Ministry of Education since July 2016.
My early research was on face recognition based on
subspace methods, when I worked for Ph.D. degree in
Applied Mathematics with
Prof. Jianhuang Lai and Prof.
Pong C. Yuen at Sun Yat-sen University and Hong
Kong Baptist University. I have been
a visiting student working with Prof.
Stan Z. Li at the Institute of Automation,
Chinese Academy of Sciences. There, I started my
research on sparsity learning for pattern recognition
with sparse one-sided non-negativity matrix
After 2008, I worked as a Postdoctoral
Researcher on the European
SAMURAI project for person association with Prof.
Shaogang Gong and Dr.
Tao Xiang. In Queen
University of London, I
proposed to use relative comparison to overcome the
ill-posed matching problem between the appearance of
people across non-overlapping camera views. The
idea was also extended to group of people association.
I also created an i-LIDS dataset for evaluating this
After I joined Sun Yat-sen University in 2011, I am
now focusing on three research areas: 1) person
re-identification under challenging scenarios, 2) action
prediction and group activity recognition,
and 3) the related
large scale machine learning research (hashing for
fast search, unsupervised learning, and deep
