About me

I am a Nanyang Assistant Professor with MMLab@NTU at the College of Computing and Data Science, 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 in computer vision, machine learning, and computer graphics, with a focus on generative models for visual content creation.

To perspective students: If you are interested in joining our group at MMLab@NTU, please drop me an email at xingang.pan[at]ntu.edu.sg with your resume. There has been concerns about nationality constraints. Currently we still have openings without any nationality constraint. Students from any countries are welcome to apply.
