Research Statement

My research interests are computer vision, computer graphics, and machine learning. I particularly focus on joint analysis of 2D images and 3D shapes, that enables information to flow between 2D to 3D domains bidirectionally. Potential applications include 3D reconstruction, robots, virtual/augmented reality, etc.

To lay a solid foundation for data-driven approaches, I contributed in building large-scale knowledge-base of 2D images (ImageNet) and 3D shapes (ShapeNet), where rich semantical, visual, geometrical, and physical properties are stored.

Towards the goal, I also believe that it is essential to bridge two fields --- computer vision and computer graphics, where the former focuses on visual data analysis and the latter on geometrical and physical data analysis. I develop tools to link 2D and 3D data based upon geometry processing and machine learning techniques, especially deep learning.
