I am a fifth-year PhD Candidate at Department of Computer & Information Science & Engineering, University of Florida under the supervision of Prof. Anand Rangarajan and Prof. Sanjay Ranka at the Modern Artificial intelligence and Learning Technologies Lab (UF MALT Lab).

I received B.E. degree from Department of Software Engineering, Sichuan University in June, 2015. From 2014-2016, I 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. I was a Research Intern at Megvii (Face++) Research USA, working with Dr. Jue Wang. I worked closely with Dr. Xiaolin Li.

I am expected to graduate in Fall 2022. I am interested in applying for academic or industrial research jobs.
