I am a third-year doctorate student of the Image and Video Computing (IVC) group in the Computer Science Department of Boston University. My adviser is Prof. Stan Sclaroff . My research field is computer vision and my recent focus is on action recognition, collaborating with Prof. Nazli Ikizler-Cinbis . I am also a coordinator of the IVC seminars in which we invite external researchers to give talks. From 2006 to 2009, I worked on computer vision with Prof. Weiqiang Wang in the JDL research lab in the Chinese Academy of Sciences, where I received my Master's degree. In 2006, I received Bachelor's Degree in Software Engineering from Fudan University and also Bachelor's Degree in Computer Sciences from University College Dublin. In 2013, I did a summer internship in Google at Mountain View in the VideoAds group.
