About

Bio

I am a first-year Ph.D. student in Computer Engineering at Virginia Tech. I work with Prof. Jia-Bin Huang. My recent research interests focus on deep generative modeling and video analysis.

Before that, I have worked with Prof. Honglak Lee, Dr. Yuting Zhang and Ruben Villegas during my masters at University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and Prof. Xiaojin Gong during my undergrad at Zhejiang University.

In 2017 summer, I had my wonderful time visiting California and working with Zelun Luo and Judy Hoffman.

My CV is available here (last updated on Jun. 2017).
