I am a 4th-year PhD student, under the supervision of Prof. Stan Sclaroff. Before joining the IVC group at Boston University, I had received a M.S and a B.S. degree in Mathematical Science at Tsinghua University, Beijing, China. My current research focuses on visual tracking, action recognition, visual saliency, etc.
