Biography (CV)

Yahui Liu is a PhD student in Multimedia and Human Understanding Group (MHUG) at the Department of Information Engineering and Computer Science of the University of Trento, Italy, supervised by Prof. Nicu Sebe and Dr. Bruno Lepri. Before that, he received B.Eng. degree in Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing and M.Eng. degree in Pattern Recognition and Intelligent System from Wuhan University in 2015 and 2018, respectively, under the supervision of Prof. Jian Yao. My research interests lie in the areas of Computer Vision and Natural Language Processing. Recently, he is working on unsupervised learning and image domain translation.
