About me

I am a first-year Ph.D. student in the Computer Science Department at Princeton University. I received my undergraduate degree from Shanghai Jiao Tong University (ACM Honors Class) in 2018. Previously, I was a research intern at MIT CSAIL, under the supervision of Professor Josh Tenenbaum and Professor Bill Freeman. I also worked as a research assistant at SJTU BCMI Lab, directed by Professor Hongtao Lu. My research interests lie at the intersection of computer vision and machine learning (especially deep learning).
