I am an incoming Ph.D. in Computer Engineering at Virginia Tech. I will join Vision and Learning Lab in Fall 2017, working 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.

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