About me

I am an Assistant Professor with MMLab@NTU at the School of Computer Science and Engineering, Nanyang Technological University. Prior to joining NTU, I was a postdoc researcher at Max Planck Institute for Informatics, advised by Prof. Christian Theobalt. I received my Ph.D. degree at Multimedia Laboratory in the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2021, supervised by Prof. Xiaoou Tang. I also worked closely with Prof. Ping Luo and Prof. Chen Change Loy during my Ph.D. time. I obtained my Bachelor’s degree from Tsinghua University in 2016.

My research interests are at the interface of computer vision, machine learning, and computer graphics. Our group will explore the following research directions:

  • Generative Models
  • AI-Human Collaborative Content Generation
  • 3D&Video Editing and Generation
  • Neural Scene Representations and Rendering
  • Physics-aware Content Generation

I am looking for self-motivated Ph.D. students to join my group at MMLab@NTU in Fall 2024. I also have openings for Postdocs and RAs. Please drop me an email at xingang.pan@ntu.edu.sg with your resume if you are interested in working together with me on cutting-edge research topics listed above. To motivate diversity in our group, we encourage students from different countries to apply. For more details, please refer to:

To perspective students (click here) Thank you for your interest in joining my group! Due to the volume of emails received, I apologize in advance if I'm unable to respond to every applicant personally.

PhD applicants for 2024 fall intake: The review and interview process is scheduled to take place around December 2023 and January 2024. You are also encouraged to apply for the AISG Fellowship. Thank you for your patience.
