Qibin (Andrew) Hou

Qibin Hou (Andrew, andrewhoux AT gmail DOT com) is at present a first-year Ph.D. student under Prof. Cheng’s supervision. Before joining in the media group at Nankai University, I was a machine learning engineer in Baidu. My research interests include low-level vision, deep learning, and multimedia applications.

About my name, Qibin, it is really hard western people to pronounce “Qi” as the sound does not exist in all languages apart from Chinese. So, you can also call me “Chibin” or my English name Andrew, which is much easier to pronounce.
