Brief Bio

Yulan Guo received his PhD degree from NUDT in 2015. He was a visiting Ph.D. student with the University of Western Australia from 2011 to 2014. He worked as a post-doctorial research fellow with the Institute of Computing Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences from 2016 to 2018. He has authored over 80 articles in journals and conferences, such as the IEEE TPAMI and IJCV. His current research interests focus on 3D vision, particularly on 3D feature learning, 3D modeling, 3D object recognition, and 3D biometrics. Dr. Guo received the CAAI Outstanding Doctoral Dissertation Award in 2016. He served as an associate editor for IET Computer Vision and IET Image Processing, a guest editor for IEEE TPAMI, a PC member for several conferences (e.g., CVPR, ICCV, ACM MM, IJCAI, AAAI, SIGGRAPH Asia), a reviewer for over 30 journals, and an organizer (as co-chair) for a tutorial in CVPR 2016 and a workshop in CVPR 2019.
