Zhiyuan Chen

G’ day mate, how are you doing?

My name is Zhiyuan (pronounces as ˈʤ-jʊˈɑːn). I am a MPhil student in the joint program of the HKU-MMLab and the Shanghai AI Lab, supervised by Prof. Xihui Liu. My current research interests focus on building advanced machine learning models and toolkits to solve scientific problems.

Before pursuing my graduate studies, I was a researcher with DP Tech, where I worked on macro molecules. Prior to joining DP in 2022, I had the privilege of being a research assistant of StarBridge program & research intern of Star of Tomorrow program under the guidance of Dr. Pan Deng at Microsoft Research Asia & Microsoft Research AI for Science from 2021-2022, where I worked on Computational Biology. Preceding my time at MSR, I was very fortunate to work as a research intern at SenseTime supervised by Dr. Yue Liao, where I worked on self-supervised learning, transformer in vision, and large-scale neural networks. I also worked at Shanghai AI Lab, Westlake University, SenseTime, and Peking University.

Coding could be the thing I love most, I have initiated several open source projects, including DanLing & CHANfiG, I am the maintainer of PySOT & iCrawler, and I have contributed to many other repositories, including Accelerate, OpenCV, PyTorch, etc.

I am also passionate about public welfare, I am a volunteer with various NGOs.

Believing in the power of coding for social good, I founded wuhan.support in January 2020 for COVID-19.

I’m always open to discussions and collaborations. If my work resonates with you, feel free to connect via email, Messenger, or WeChat (zyc-ml).

We (Shanghai AI Lab) are looking for highly passionate and talented interns. Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you are interested.

For code-related inquiries or discussions, I encourage to use GitHub issues or discussions rather than email, to ensure fairness and collective troubleshooting.

And if you’re into gaming, let’s team up~
