About

PhD candidate in computer science, member of Image and Video Computing Group, advised by Prof. Stan Sclaroff. I obtained my M.Sc. degree in computer science from Boston University in 2013, and my B.Sc. degree (with honors) in computer science from Zhejiang University in 2010.

My research interests lie in exploring solutions to computer vision problems using machine learning techniques, examples include hashing for image retrieval, object detection, and pose estimation. I'm frequently attracted by the optimization aspect (stochastic, non-convex, etc.) in such problems.

I did two enjoyable research internships during Fall 2013 and Summer 2015 working with Dr. Leon Sigal at Disney Research Pittsburgh, on projects related to object recognition. In spring 2014 I was a visiting student in Prof. Pedro Felzenszwalb's group at Brown University.

Here is my CV (updated Mar 2017).
