About Me

I got my Ph.D. degree in 2018 from Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at University of Missouri. Before coming to the U.S, I graduated from Beijing Jiaotong University with a B.S degree in Electrical Engineering in December 2011.

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