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.

I'm interested in exploring solutions to computer vision problems using machine learning techniques, and I'm frequently attracted by the optimization aspect in such problems. Currently my focus is on hashing and metric learning for image retrieval and other related vision tasks.

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

Here is my CV (updated August 2017)
