Yilun Chen

I am currently a second-year PhD student at Computer Science & Engineering Department, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, under the supervision of Prof. Jiaya Jia.

I have a great time to do research with Dr. Shu Liu and Dr. Xiaoyong Shen as a research intern at Youtu X-Lab at Tencent. Before that, I was lucky to work with Dr. Gang Yu and Dr. Jian Sun during my internship in Megvii (Face++) Research.

My research interests lie primarily in computer vision and deep learning, particularly focusing on 2D/3D object detection and human pose estimation.
