Ze Liu (刘泽)

Ze Liu is currently a final-year joint Ph.D. candidate at the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) and Microsoft Research Asia (MSRA), co-supervised by Prof. Baining Guo and Prof. Yong Wang. He received his B.S. degree from USTC in 2019 with the highest honor, the "Guo Moruo Scholarship". Currently, he is working as a research intern at the Visual Computing Group in MSRA, collaborating closely with Han Hu, Yue Cao and Zheng Zhang.

His primary research interests lie in computer vision and deep learning, with a specific focus on designing visual architectures and developing large-scale vision/multi-modality models. He also loves training large language models.

His work of Swin Transformer won the Best Paper Award (Marr Prize) of ICCV 2021. Additionally, he was selected as a recipient of the Microsoft Research PhD Fellowship in 2022.

He is currently seeking a research position to start in the winter of 2023 or the summer of 2024 (China, North America, Europe), please feel free to drop him an email if you are interested in his research.
