I am a PhD student in Computer Science at UIUC (starting from 2015 Fall), working with Prof. Derek Hoiem on computer vision. Right now I am trying to work on improving detection and tracking using e.g. given background prior, and some related small projects.

Before coming to UIUC, I completed a MS in the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, where I am supervised by Dr. Daniel Huber. My research focused on Infrastructure Component Recognition using Cross-domain Learning, within the Aerial Robotic Infrastructure Analyst (ARIA) project. I obtained my bachelor’s degree from Department of Automation, Tsinghua University in Beijing, China. During my undergraduate study I finished my graduation dissertation on Stick Figure Body Parts Recognition with Dr. Changshui Zhang. I also accomplished a project with a 6 DoF robot involved, under Dr. Zongying Shi‘s guidance.

My research interest lies in Computer Vision, especially its intersection with Machine Learning. My curriculum vitae can be found here [PDF] (updated Nov. 2016).
