Bo Zhang

Short Bio

I am currently a researcher at Visual Computing Group of Microsoft research asia (MSRA).

I received my Ph.D. degree with the Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) in 2019. Prior to that, I received my Bachelor degree of Engineering at Zhejiang University in 2013. I joined the Microsoft Research Asia in May 2019.

My research interest involves computational photography, image synthesis, low-level computer vision and smart imaging system.

We are seeking long-term internship candidates and looking for research collaboration. Please send email to me if you are interested in joining us.
