Yuexin Ma is an Assistant Professor in SIST, ShanghaiTech University. She received the B.Sc. degree from Shandong University in 2015 and the PhD degree from the University of Hong Kong in 2019. After that, she held a Research Assistant Professor position in Hong Kong Baptist University. She visited French Institute for Research in Computer Science and Automation in 2017, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2018, and Baidu Research in 2019. Her research interests include computer vision, computer graphics, and autonomous driving. Particularly, her current research focuses on behavior and trajectory prediction, 3D scene understanding, 3D detection and segmentation, and muti-agent motion planning. Her work has been published on several top journals and conferences, including Science Robotics, CVPR, ECCV, AAAI, IJCAI, Siggraph Asia, AAMAS, MICCAI, etc.

We are recruiting PhD/ Postdoc/ interns/ Research Assistants/ visiting students in computer vision. If you are interested in, feel free to send your CV to my email.
