Qiong Cao

mathqiong2012@gmail.com

I am a Research Scientist at JD Explore Academy working with Prof. Dacheng Tao. Formerly I was a Senior Researcher at Tencent Youtu Lab. Before that, I was a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Visual Geometry Group (VGG) at the University of Oxford, where I worked with Prof. Andrew Zisserman.

I obtained my PhD in Computer Science from the University of Exeter under the supervision of Prof. Yiming Ying and Richard Everson.

My research interests are in computer vision and deep learning, with a specific interest in human-centric 2D and 3D visual perception and multimodal generation.
