Nice to meet you! I am Yihao Meng (蒙祎昊), currently a Ph.D. student in HKUST VisLab, at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), supervised by Prof. Huamin Qu. Before joining HKUST, I obtained my B.S. degree in Artificial Intelligence(Honor class in Qian Xuesen College) from Xi’an Jiaotong University in 2023.

My research interests lie in computer vision(CV) and human computer interaction(HCI). I am still trying to find a specific research topic in my first year Ph.D. study.
