Dave Zhenyu Chen


Hey there! I’m Dave Zhenyu Chen (in Chinese: 陈振宇).

I’m a third-year second-year first-year Ph.D. candidate at TUM Visual Computing Group, advised by Prof. Dr. Matthias Niessner and Prof. Dr. Angel X. Chang. Previously, I received my Master’s Degree in Informatics at Ludwig Maximilians University of Munich (LMU). Prior to this, I got my Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science at University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC). My CV can be found here.

My research interests are:

  • 3D scene understanding, e.g. 3D semantic/instance segmentation;
  • Grounding natural language in 3D environments, e.g. 3D object localization, vision-language navigation;
  • Cross-modal retrieval, e.g. text-to-image retrieval, text-to-CAD retrieval retrieval.

I’m open for collaborations - If you have cool research ideas, please don’t hesitate to shoot me an email. :smile:
