About Me

I am a third year Ph.D. student in the Computer Science Department at UC Berkeley, advised by Professor Trevor Darrell . I am mainly interested in computer vision and machine learning.

Before that, I graduated from the computer science deparment at Tsinghua University, where I worked with Prof. Jun Zhu on machine learning. I have also interned in Google Research on natural language processing from 2011 to 2012, cooperating with Dr. Edward Y. Chang and Dr. Fangtao Li.
