About Me

I am a 5th year Ph.D. student in Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at University of Missouri, advised by Professor Zhihai He.

My research focus on computer vision and deep learning. Specifically, I'm interested in generic object detection and recognition, visual tracking, and human pose estimation.

Before coming to the U.S, I graduated from Beijing Jiaotong University with a B.S degree in Electrical Engineering in December 2011.
