I am a Ph.D. student in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Georgia Tech, jointly supervised by Prof. Hongyuan Zha (CSE) and Prof. Mark A. Davenport (ECE). At the same time, I am a research assistant in the College of Computing at Georgia Tech. I received my Bachelor Degree in Electronic and Information Engineering from Tianjin University in 2010 and my dual Master Degree in ECE from Shanghai Jiao Tong University and Georgia Tech in 2013. My research interests include machine learning and its applications, e.g., computer vision and data mining.
