Research area: Computer Vision


I am a third year Phd student of Computer Science Department in University of British Columbia. My supervisor is Jim Little.
I have studied in CAD&CG lab in Zhejiang University and the Centre for Vision Research in York University.
I had an internship in Disney Research 2014, supervised by Dr. Peter Carr.


I use C++ for most part of my work based on OpenCV, VXL, and VLFeat.

From September 2016 to April 2017, I organized Computer Vision Reading Group (cvrg) in UBC.
