Welcome to Wang Yan (王龑)'s Homepage

2023/01 - Now, I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Institute of Intelligent Robotics, Fudan University. Supervisor: Prof. Wenqiang Zhang.

2019/09 - 2023/01, I was a Ph.D. student (Outstanding Graduate of Shanghai) in Academy for Engineering and Technology, Fudan University, China. Supervisor: Prof. Wenqiang Zhang.

2016/09 - 2019/07, I was a Master student (Outstanding Graduate of Shanghai) in College of Information Technology, Shanghai Ocean University, China. Supervisor: Prof. Dongmei Huang and Prof. Wei Song.

Research Interests:

    My primary reseach interests include artificial intelligence,computer vision, and image processing, Affective Computing, particularly in the domains of

  • Facial Expression Recognition. The purpose is to design AI models to perceive and understand human emotion from facial images or videos. The specific research topics are
    1. Pose/occlusion-free Facial Expression Recognition
    2. Dataset Construction for Dynamic Facial Expression Recognition and Benchmark
    3. Dynamic Facial Expression Recognition
    4. Knowledge-aware Dynamic Facial Expression Recognition
    5. Cross-domain Dynamic Facial Expression Recognition
  • Image Restorationand and Enhancement, Underwater Imaging. The purpose is to develop algorithms to process an image so that result is more suitable than original image or video for specific application. The specific research topics are
    1. Enhancing the images captured in adverse weather (hazy, foggy, sandy, dusty, rainy, snowy day) in terms of pixel distribution
    2. Restoring images captured in special circumstances or devices (underwater and weak illumination) in terms of optical imaging mechanism
    3. General Image Enhancement and Restoration
