PhD in Computer Science and Engineering

UC Santa Cruz

I am a 3rd-year PhD student at UC Santa Cruz, supervised by Prof. Cihang Xie. Before this, I received my M.S. degree at Institute of Computing Technology, Chinese Academy of Science in 2021, and my B.E. degree at Central South University in 2018. I am an incoming intern at LLNL. have also spent wonderful times at QCraft and Megvii (Face++).

My research interest lies in the intersection of computer vision and machine learning.
