Experience

Microsoft

Jul 2022 - Present, Software Engineer @ STCA M365, Microsoft, Beijing, China.

Jul 2021 - Oct 2021, Software Engineer Intern @ STCA OXO, Microsoft, Beijing, China.

I joined the Office eXperience grOup to develop and maintain Teams Approvals App which is a multi-platform application. I was mainly involved in front-end development, and the main technology stack used in the project is React and TypeScript.

  1. I implemented the front-end part of the feature called "New Request Page". This was an update to the current UX design that affected the main flow of our application and required careful and experienced coding. I read through the relevant source code, assisted in writing the full development documentation, refactored the legacy code, and completed the work smoothly and successfully.
  2. I fixed a bug about user authentication caused by an internal API upgrade. I mined user logs through the Kusto query language, investigated its cause in the source code, communicated with the API provider, and finally made a workaround by modifying the back-end part of our codebase.

ByteDance

Apr 2019 - Jun 2019, Software Engineer Intern @ UGC Huoshan Video, ByteDance, Beijing, China.

I joined the Douyin/Huoshan team to develop and maintain the "Huoshan Video" application (and its international version "Vigo"). The development uses the Android native technology stack, including popular languages, packages and frameworks such as Kotlin, Jetpack, Retrofit, RxJava, etc. During this time, I implemented several features for our Android app, including: personalization options for country-specific users, a scrolling autoplay switch, and more. I became familiar with the process of conducting A/B tests, how to internationalize in an application, and competently performed these tasks with solid Android native development skills.

Huawei

Jul 2018 - Aug 2018, Software Engineer Intern @ Consumer BG AI Application Department, Huawei, Beijing, China.

I joined the Consumer Business Group to develop AI algorithm prototypes for cell phone cameras. In the field of computer vision, I pre-researched algorithms for artificial intelligence applications, replicating and improving algorithms proposed in published papers. During this period, I completed the quantification of a deep learning based real-time HDR algorithm running on DSP.

TWT Studio (Tian Wai Tian Studio)

Jan 2017 - Apr 2022, Voluntary Software Engineer @ TWTStudio, Tianjin University, Tianjin, China.

I develop and maintain on-campus Android applications, such as, WePeiYang and TruthSeeker. WePeiYang is an on-campus Android application that helps Tianjin University students check their grades and class schedules, provide feedback to the university's administrative units, and more. This application has thousands of student users. I completed the common and gpa2 modules. In the common module, I built a lot of common components based on Retrofit, OkHttp, LiveData and some modern features of Kotlin programming language to facilitate the coding of business modules. In the gpa2 module, I wrote several custom Views to display GPA by line and radar charts.

Publications

AdvExposure (Jadena)

Ruijun Gao, Qing Guo, Felix Juefei-Xu, Hongkai Yu, Huazhu Fu, Wei Feng, Yang Liu, and Song Wang. Can You Spot the Chameleon? Adversarially Camouflaging Images from Co-Salient Object Detection. In Proceedings of IEEE/CVF Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR), pp. 2150-2159, 2022. CVF Open Access arXiv GitHub

In this paper, we identify a novel task: adversarial co-saliency attack. Our method, without any information on the state-of-the-art CoSOD methods, leads to significant performance degradation on various co-saliency detection datasets and makes the co-salient objects undetectable. This can have strong practical benefits in properly securing the large number of personal photos currently shared on the internet. Moreover, our method is potential to be utilized as a metric for evaluating the robustness of CoSOD methods.

AdvHaze

Ruijun Gao, Qing Guo, Hongkai Yu, and Wei Feng. Adversarial Attack Method Against Image Classification Based on Haze Perturbation. In Scientia Sinica Informationis (SSI), 2022. SciEngine

In this work, for the first attempt, we study the effects of haze on DNNs from the perspective of adversarial attack and propose two adversarial haze attack methods, which achieve comparable attack success rates and transferability to state-of-the-art attacks. This work would contribute to the evaluation and enhancement of the robustness of DNNs against haze perturbation that may happen in the real world.

BlurTrack

This paper explores the effects of blur and deblurring to visual object tracking, and designs a general GAN-based scheme to improve a tracker's robustness to motion blur. I conducted a series of experiments on GPU servers, debugged codes espectially in deep learning, and drew figures based on quantitive results and cases.

Skills

I have solid knowledge of computer science, such as, data structures, algorithms, operating systems, deep learning, and adversarial attacks, as well as extensive engineering experience proven by internships and full-time work. I like to taste and grasp different programming languages including Python, Rust, Kotlin, and TypeScript. I dabble in two broad categories of libraries and frameworks, deep learning and GUI related, ranging from PyTorch, NumPy, and TensorFlow, to React, Vue, and Flutter. I speak Chinese and English and have an IELTS score of 7.5 (L8.5, R8.5, W6.5, S6).
