I am a 2nd year Ph.D. student in Vision and Learning Lab at University of California, Merced. My advisor is Prof. Ming-Hsuan Yang. Before that, I received the M.S. degree at Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2015 and B.S. degree at Zhejiang University in 2012. Here is my CV.

My current research interests lie in the computer vision and machine learning. More specifically,
(1) Low-level vision
(2) Image generation and synthesis
