Brief Biography

I’m a third year Ph.D Student in Computer Science at Texas A&M University, my advisor is Dr. Zhangyang Wang. From 2016 - 2017, I was a research assistant working with Dr. Shenghua Gao at Visual Computing Lab, ShanghaiTech University. I received my B.Eng degree in Electrical Engineering from Tongji University, Shanghai in 2016.
