Biography [Go to Full CV]

I am a second-year Ph.D. student at University of Minnesota - Twin Cities supervised by Prof. Catherine Qi Zhao in Computer Science from 2019 fall.

I used to be an intern in Multimedia Research Center, Shenzhen Institutes of Advanced Technology Chinese Academy of Sciences supervised by Prof. Yali Wang and Prof. Yu Qiao from August 2018 to January 2019. I focus on object detection, especially, low shots detection and life-long learning.

I have graduated and gotten my master degree in July 2018 in School of Electronics and Information Technology, Sun Yat-sen University, supervised by Prof. Ming Jiang. Previously, I received the B. Eng degree from School of Information Science and Technology in Sun Yat-sen University in 2015, under the supervision of Prof. Ming Jiang.

My research interests include machine learning, deep learning, computer vision, representation learning, convex optimization. With solid mathematical knowledge achieved from my previous research, I hope to extend my research area to deep learning, computer vision and other related fields in my future PhD career.


[08/2019] Finish my two-month internship at Tencent AI Lab.

[02/2019] I am happy to accept the Ph.D. offer from University of Minnesota - Twin Cities and awarded a two year CSE Graduate Fellowship!
