   I am currently a researcher working with Professor Pierre Moulin at the Advanced Digital Sciences Center (ADSC), the Singapore-based research center of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). I was glad to work with Professor Ponnuthurai Nagaratnam Suganthan  towards my PhD degree from 2011-2015  in school of EEE , Nanyang Technological University (NTU). I received my B.E. from University of Electronic Science and Technology Of China (UESTC) in 2011 and M.SC  form Nanyang Technological University  (NTU) in 2012 .

Research Interest
   Pattern Classification and Computer Vision.
