I'm now a Lecturer in the Department of Computing Science. My research interests are focused on deep reinforcement learning (DRL) and its applications to robotics, video games and medical/microscopy images (e.g., axon tracking). In addition, I’m also interested in the research of computational photography, such as high dynamic range (HDR) imaging.  

Before I joined the University of Aberdeen, I finished my PhD degree and worked as a Research Associate at Imperial College London. Prior to that, I also had two research internships in Tencent AI Lab/Robotics X and Huawei Noah’s Ark Lab (London), respectively. Currently, I'm also the reviewer of several conferences and journals, such as AAAI, TNNLS, ToG, Cognitive Computation, etc.
