I'm Yajie Zhao, a Research Assistant Professor at USC Computer Science Department and I'm also the Interim Director of the Vision and Graphics Lab at USC-ICT. We are aiming at making the high resolution facial data accessible to the whole research community. My current research interests are high resolution human face/body 3D representation, neural rendering and human/scene related applications in VR/AR .
I'm also excited about problem solving related to computer graphics, computer vision and image processing areas.
I got my Ph.D in computer science from University of Kentucky under the supervision of Dr. Ruigang Yang. Before that, I got my B.S. degree in computer science from Xi'an Jiaotong University in China.
Here is my CV.
