Research Interests

My research interests include Multimedia Analytics, Vicinagearth Security, and Embodied AI. In particular, I have recently worked in:

  • Multimedia Analytics: detection and tracking of small objects in complex scenarios, etc.
  • Vicinagearth Security: perception and understanding of visual targets in unconstrained conditions, etc.
  • Embodied AI: MLLM and AIGC for Beauty, Food, Home, Tour, Clip, etc.

More details can be found here.
