About Me

I am a 4th year Ph.D. student in Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at University of Missouri, advised by Professor Zhihai He. My expected graduation date is May, 2017.

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

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