Jian Ren

I am a Senior Research Scientist working in the Creative Vision group at Snap Inc. Before joining Snap Inc., I worked as a Research Intern at Adobe, Snap Inc., and Bytedance Research.

I got a Ph.D. in Computer Engineering at Rutgers University under the supervision of Professor David J. Foran and Professor Manish Parashar in 2019, and a B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from University of Science and Technology of China in 2014.

[Internship/Collaboration Opportunities] We are always looking for self-motivated interns.

I'm interested in computer vision, machine learning, high-performance computing, deep learning, and generative adversarial networks.
