About Me

Hi! I am a third year Ph.D. student in Robitics institute at Carnegie Mellon University, advised by Jessica Hodgins. My research interests lie in computer vision and machine learning, with a focus on 3D/4D representation, neural rendering and generative models.

I earned my master's degree in Dec. 2018 from the Robotics Institue at Carnegie Mellon University where I worked with Prof. Katerina Fragkiadaki and Prof. Simon Lucey. Prior to CMU, I received my bachelar's degree from the Department of Automation at Tsinghua University in China, advised by Prof. Jiwen Lu. In summer 2018, I have the fortunate to work with Dr. Samuel Schulter, Dr. Buyu Liu and Prof. Manmohan Chandraker in Media Analytics Group at NEC Labs, America. In 2016, I spent my summer in Vision & Learning Lab at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor as a research assistant, supervised by Prof. Jia Deng.
