Rui Qian (钱锐)

I am a Ph.D. student in Multi-Media Lab at The Chinese University of Hong Kong, supervised by Prof. Dahua Lin.

I got my bachelor's degree from School of Electronic Information and Electrical Engineering at Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2021, supervised by Prof. Weiyao Lin. During my undergraduate, I also interned at Sensetime OpenMMLab group, supervised by Dr. Kai Chen. And I am also honored to work with Prof. Di Hu.

I am interested in computer vision and machine learning, and have done some research on video representation learning and joint audio-visual learning.

    1. Great honor to be awarded the bachelor's degree from Shanghai Jiao Tong University, really memorable four years and great thanks for the friends, colleagues and professors.

    2. I am fond of Formula 1 and a real Tifosi. Excited to see Ferrari coming back this season and enjoy the battle between Charles Leclerc and Max Verstappen.

    3. Here is my best friend Shuangrui, who is really talented and interesting. More than ten years' friendship, great company, marvellous collaboration, memorable encouragement and indispensible shared enjoyment.
