Changqing Zou received the BE degree from the Harbin Institute of Technology, China, in 2005, and the ME degree from the Institute of Remote Sensing and Digital Earth, Chinese Academy of Sciences, China, in 2008. After that he spent two years at C2 Microsystems, Inc. (Beijing) as a Software Engineer, then he became an Assistant Professor at Hengyang Normal Univeristy in 2010. He joined the multimedia lab founded by Prof. Xiaoou Tang at SIAT, Shenzhen as the first PhD student from Aug. 2011 to Dec. 2014, supervised by Prof. Jianzhuang Liu. During pursuing his PhD degree, He also worked at MSRA and the City University of Hongkong as a vsiting researcher from 2013 to 2014, where he obtained many academic helps from Prof. Lei Zhang, Researcher Changhu Wang, and Prof. Hongbo Fu. He spent two years as a postdoctoral researcher at SFU, Canada from 2015 to 2017, supervised by Prof. Richard (Hao) Zhang and Prof. Ping Tan. He currently works at the University of Maryland (UMD), Park College as an assistant research scientist, reporting to Dr. Varshney. His interests include Computer Graphics and Computer Vision.
I currently work at UMIACS as an assistant research scientist.
