Hi, I am a first-year Ph.D student at University of Texas at Austin, VITA Group, supervised by Prof. Zhangyang Wang. Before that I spent one year at Texas A&M University. I received my undergraduate degree from Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan, China. My interests include Deep Learning and Computer Vision. Now I mainly work on the area of Neural Architecture Search, Video Understanding, and High-level Representation Learning.

During my undergraduate year, I worked at Bytedance AI Lab as a research intern supervised by Dr. Jianchao Yang, Dr. Ding Liu, Dr. Chen Fang, and Dr. Xiaohui Shen on 2019 spring. I also worked as a Research Assistant with Prof. Pan Zhou (HUST) and Dr. Yu Cheng (Microsoft AI Research).


  • July 2020: I will co-lead ECCV RLQ-TOD Workshop 2020. Welcome to submit your work and join the challenge!
  • May 2020: I will join Adobe as research intern during this summer in San Jose, CA.

    More About Me
  • I like cocktail and sometimes I will mix drinks at home, though I am still a beginner :).
  • I also enjoy piano, both classical and popular music. Playing the piano is my daily weekly routine.
