Dr Liang Zheng has joined the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) as an Assistant Professor since 2018. Prior to that, he worked as a postdoc researcher in the University of Technology Sydney and in the University of Texas at San Antonio. He obtained both his B.E. and Ph.D. degrees from Tsinghua University, in the School of Life Science and the Department of Electronic Engineering. He has published over 20 papers in highly selected venues such as TPAMI, IJCV, CVPR, ECCV, and ICCV. He has made one of the initial attempts in large-scale person re-identification by introducing five large-scale datasets and evaluation protocols, which are popularly used in the community. Conceptually, we had made early contributions in bridging the gap between person re-identification and image retrieval. He was also among the first to demonstrate the effectiveness of the Generative Adversarial Networks in the context of discriminative learning. Dr Zheng received the Outstanding PhD Thesis from Chinese Association of Artificial Intelligence in 2017, and the Early Career R&D Award from D2D CRC, Australia in 2017. His research was featured by the MIT Technical Review and his papers were selected into the computer science courses in universities such as Stanford and the University of Texas at Austin.
