About me:

I am an Assistant Professor in School of Electronics and Information at Northwestern Polytechnical University. My research interests lie in visual tracking, feature extraction and sparse representation. I am also interested in object detection, probabilistic graphical models and large-scale image classification.

I received B.S. degree from Xi'an Jiaotong University in 2009. I received my PhD degree in Institute of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics at Xi'an Jiaotong University under the supervision of Prof. Yihong Gong, and Prof. Yuehu Liu. I am lucky to have the opportunities to work with Ming-Hsuan Yang (University of California at Merced), Jinjun Wang (Xi'an Jiaotong University), Jia-Bin Huang (University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign) and Jongwoo Lim (Hanyang University).
