Dr. Tianshu Yu will join the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen as an Assistant Professor in Fall 2021. Professor Yu received bachelor degree in Computer Science at Shenyang University of Technology in 2012, master degree in Geomatics Engineering from Calgary University in 2016. Prior to that, he worked as an algorithm engineer in Philips Healthcare from 2012 to 2014. He has been a PhD student in computer science at Arizona State University since 2017.

His research interest covers several aspects in machine learning and optimization of combinatorial problems. He is particularly interested in investigating modeling, optimization and learning of graph, and seeking the structural extension within deep learning framework. He also conducts research on RNNs and determinantal point process. Dr. Yu has also served as a reviewer for several top conferences (e.g., ICLR 2021, NIPS 2020, CVPR 2019-2021, ICCV 2019, ECCV 2020) and invited reviewers for top journals (e.g., IEEE Transactions on Image Processing, IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks and Learning Systems, IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology, Pattern Recognition, Pattern Recognition Letters).
