  About Me

As a research intern at the Computer Vision and Robotics team of United Imaging intelligence (UII) America in Cambridge, MA, I am working on human mesh recovery, mentored by Dr. Ziyan Wu and Dr. Srikrishna Karanam. Before coming to UII, I worked at SenseTime, Beijing, where I was responsible for the project of the generative-model-based face forgery.

I have a wide interest in the field of computer vision. I started my PhD program in 2016 at Purdue University, West Lafayette, supervised by Prof. Jeffrey Mark Siskind. But I finally quit as a Master at the end of my third year of PhD :). During that dramatic period, I mainly focused on visual classification based on electroencephalogram (EEG) signals. I obtained my Bachelor's degree from University of Science and Technology of China (USTC).
