My research interests include computer vision, machine learning, pattern recognition and image processing. I was a summer intern at Siemens Corporate Research (Princeton, New Jersey) in 2011 and a summer intern at Mitsubishi Electric Research Lab (Cambridge, Massachusetts) in 2012. I received a B.S. degree from the Department of Automation at Tsinghua University, China in 2008.
