About Me

I am a PhD student in the computer science department at Boston University, advised by Professor Kate Saenko.

My research focuses on deep learning, computer vision and natural language processing, particularly in the area of visual question answering, video language description and activity detection.

Before coming to US, I received a Master’s degree from Graduate University of Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2012, advised by Professor Hua Yu, and a Bachelor’s degree in computer science from Hefei University of Technology in 2009. I conducted my PhD studies at the CS Department of UMass Lowell for three years, before transferring to the CS Department of Boston University to continue my PhD studies with Professor Kate Saenko.
