About

I recently finished PhD in computer science under Professor Stan Sclaroff. I hold a MSc degree in computer science from Boston University in 2013, and a Bachelor's degree (with honors) in computer science from Zhejiang University in 2010.

I am interested in exploring solutions to computer vision problems using machine learning techniques, and I'm frequently attracted by the optimization aspect in such problems. I have worked on topics in object detection, pose estimation, and image segmentation. My PhD thesis focused on learning vector embeddings for high-dimensional visual data, which finds application in image retrieval and other related vision tasks.

I was a research intern with Yan Lu at Honda Research Institute USA during Summer 2017, and with Leonid Sigal at Disney Research Pittsburgh during Summer 2015 and Fall 2013. I was a visiting student in Pedro Felzenszwalb's group at Brown University in Spring 2014.
