I am a Research Scientist at Adobe Research, focusing on image editing based on machine learning. I received Ph.D. in Computer Science at UC Berkeley, advised by Prof. Alexei Efros. Previously I interned at Adobe in 2019, working with Richard Zhang, and at NVIDIA, working with Ming-Yu Liu in summer 2018. I received B.S. in Mathematics and M.S. in Computer Science, both at Stanford University. During my Master’s program, I was advised by Vladlen Koltun and Sergey Levine. I was funded by Samsung Scholarship for my Ph.D. study, and a recipient of Adobe Research Fellowship 2020.

Call for Interns : I am looking for summer interns! If you are interested in doing a cool ML-based image editing project that may lead to a real Photoshop feature, please send me an email. My project as an intern at Adobe landed in Photoshop.
