Short Biography

I am currently an Assistant Professor with the Electronic Information School, Wuhan University, Wuhan, China. I have received my BS degree from the Department of Mathematics, and the PhD degree from the School of Automation, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan, China, in 2008 and 2014, respectively. From September 2012 to September 2013, I was an exchange student in Department of Statistics, University of California, Los Angeles, supervised by Prof. Alan L. Yuille.
