I am currently a Senior Applied Scientist at Amazon Alexa AI. Before joining Amazon, I worked at Sony R&D Center US Lab as a Senior Research Scientist from 10/2021 to 7/2022, working on Transformer-based 3D Animator Motion Generation to support PlayStation's game engine. From 4/2018 to 8/2021, I worked at Tencent America as a Senior Researcher, working on Hand Pose Estimation and Human Motion Analysis for AI-aided medical diagnosis system. From 5/2017 to 3/2018, I was a Postdoc at Bosch Research and Technology Center, working on the core modules of Hand Gesture Detection for Bosh Intelligent Glove project.

My current research interests lie at the intersection between Computer Vision, Computer Graphics, and Machine Learning.
