Ph.D., Department of Electronic Engineering, City University of Hong KongI am open to new jobs.
Dr. Zhao’s research interests lie in computer vision and deep learning, mainly including low-level vision, computational photography, generative models, and representation learning. Recently, he mainly focuses on applications of diffusion models.
Dr. Zhao received the Ph.D. degree from Department of Electronic Engineering, City University of Hong Kong in February 2023. He received the B.Eng. degree from School of Electronic and Information Engineering (Qiming College), Huazhong University of Science and Technology, June 2018.
He has interned at AI Imaging Group, SenseTime and Lightspeed and Quantum Studios, Tencent IEG, working on computer vision research and development. He has been also nominated as a reviewer for many international flagship conferences and journals such as CVPR, ICCV, ECCV, and several IEEE Transactions.
He has collected the largest joint deblurring and denoising dataset D2-Dataset, one-of-the-largest kinship verification and generation dataset FF-Database, a legacy photo dataset LP Dataset, and the largest Quad-Bayer to RGB mapping dataset. You can find his developed open-sourced projects on his GitHub Project Page.
