I am a Staff Research Scientist at Google Research, working in computer vision and machine learning. Most recently, I focus on developing on-device techniques for mobile products, such as Google’s first Face Unlock on Pixel 4 (2019).
Prior to Google, I was a Deep Learning Scientist at Apple, taking a major role of algorithm development for on-device technology, including Apple’s first Face ID shipped with iPhone X (2017), real-time camera features (2018) shipped with decedent devices (eg, XR, XS, XS Max) and next-gen products. Before Apple, I was a research staff in the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University on Aug. 2010–2013, and received my Ph.D. from the same institute on Jan. 2017.
I (co-)authored over 30 publications in leading journals and conferences in computer vision and machine learning. I led the early development of IntraFace, an automated face analysis software that won the Best Demo Award in IEEE Conference on Automatic Face and Gesture Recognition (AFGR) 2015. A spinoff of IntraFace, FacioMetrics, was later acquired by Facebook on Nov. 2016. I also serves as an Area Chair on AFGR 2018–2019 and ICMI 2019.
