I am a Master Student at Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering, University of Florida. I work at Scalable Software Systems Laboratory (S3Lab) where I am supervised by 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 computer vision algorithms with real-life industrial problems, while focussing mainly on providing robust and complete solutions on scene text.
