I am a PhD Student at Department of Computer & Information Science & Engineering, University of Florida under the supervision of Prof. Anand Rangarajan and Prof. Sanjay Ranka. I closely work at National Science Foundation Center for Big Learning with Prof. Andy Li.

Before coming to Gator Nation, I received B.E. degree from Department of Software Engineering, Sichuan University in June, 2015. I once worked as a Research Assistant at the Multimedia Lab, Department of Information Engineering, Chinese University of Hong Kong (MMLab, CUHK) and Multimedia Research Center, Shenzhen Institute of Advanced Technology (MMLab, SIAT) under the supervision of Dr. Weilin Huang and Prof. Chen Change Loy, supported by Prof. Yu Qiao and Prof. Xiaoou Tang.

As an enthusiastic researcher, my goal is to combine state-of-the-art deep learning algorithms with real-life industrial problems.
