I am a first year PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at Rutgers University, advised by Prof. Dimitris Metaxas. Before that, I obtained my M.S. degree in Computer Science from Univeristy of Rochester in 2018, advised by Prof. Jiebo Luo. I received my B.E degree in Software Engineering from Sun Yat-sen University in 2016.

My research interests are in Computer Vision and Social Media Data Mining.
