I graduated from University of Alberta (UoA) in Canada with Ph.D. degree in Computer Engineering advised by Professor Li Cheng. During my Ph.D., I was fortunate to intern at Meta Reality Labs twice, advised by Dr. Yuanlu Xu in 2023 and Dr. Minh Vo in 2022, and also at Huawei 2012 Labs twice. Before Ph.D., I graduated from University College London (UCL) with M.Res. degree advised by Professor Jun Wang and Beijing Institute of Technology (BIT) with B.Sc. degree advised by Professor Huiqi Li.

I joined Multimedia Lab Multimedia Lab at SIAT was founded by Professor Xiaoou Tang and Yu Qiao, and is currently led by Professor Chao Dong. at Shenzhen Institute of Advanced Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences (SIAT, CAS) as a Research Assisstant Professor. If you are interested in collaborating on research or have any other inquiries, please don't hesitate to contact me. Thank you for visiting!

My research interests lie in computer vision, machine learning, and reinforcement learning.
