Shi Zenglin is a Full Professor at the School of Computer and InformationHefei University of Technology, Hefei, China. He received his PhD degree from University of Amsterdam in Netherlands, where he worked closely with Prof. Cees Snoek and Dr. Pascal Mattes. After his PhD, He moved to Singapore to work as a research scientist at A*STAR in Singapore from 2022 July to 2023 December. His research interests include Multimedia Computing, Computer Vision and Machine Learning. Currently, his research focuses on adaptive machine learning and Multimodal Large Language Models, specifically on continual learning, test-time adaptation, prompt-based learning, instruction tuning, retrieval augmented generation, etc. He has published 25 papers (12 first/co-first) in top-tier journals and conferences, such as TPAMI, IJCV, TIP, CVPR, ICCV, MICCAI, receiving more than 1200 paper citations.
