I recently graduated from Computer Science and Engineering at University of Michigan, advised by Prof. Jia DengI visited Princeton University from November 2018 to June 2020. I obtained my bachelor degree from University of Science and Technology of ChinaMy research interest is focused on reducing human designs in deep learning and computer vision through dynamic inference, unified loss framework, architecture search, and synthetic data generation. I did internship in Summer and Fall 2018 at Google Cloud AI Research, advised by Dr. Tomas Pfister and Dr. Jia Li, and with AWS Rekognition and Video team in summer 2019. After graduation, I joined Facebook as a full-time in summer 2020.
