I obtained my Ph.D. degree (yeah!!!) in Computer Science and Enginnering at Pennsylvania State University in August, 2019. I work with Prof. Daniel Kifer and Prof. C. Lee Giles. My research interests lie broadly in deep learning and computer vision, with a focus on object detection and sequence-to-sequence modeling. Currently I am working on scene text recognition, detection and generative adversarial networks (GAN) for text.

Prior to joining Penn State, I obtained my Bachelor degree from Department of Automation, Tsinghua University.

In my spare time, I enjoy riding mountain bikes and traveling.
