Yangyan Li is a tech leader in Alibaba AI Lab, working on 3D perception for autonomous driving. He was a professor in School of Computer Science and Technology, Shandong University, working with Interdisciplinary Research Center (IRC). Before that, he was a postdoctoral research fellow in Stanford University with Prof. Leonidas J. Guibas and Tel Aviv University with Prof. Daniel Cohen-Or. Yangyan received his PhD degree from University of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2013, under supervision of Prof. Baoquan Chen. His primary research interests fall in the field of Computer Graphics and Computer Vision, with an emphasis on 3D learning and vision.

I am hiring R&D with Master/PhD degrees, as well as interns, with strong interests in topics related to 3D perception for autonomous driving, including but not limited to point cloud/image based 3D reconstruction, recognition, segmentation, detection and pose estimation. Please contact me if you are interested.
