About Me

I am a Ph.D. student in Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Michigan, advised by Professor Jia Deng. My research interests are in computer vision and machine learning.

I interned at Google Research in Summer 2017, Adobe Research in Summer 2016, and DAQRI in Summer 2014.

Before starting my Ph.D., I received an M.S. in Electrical Engineering: Systems from the University of Michigan in 2013, and a B.S. in Electronics Engineering from National Chiao Tung University in 2009. During Summer and Fall 2013, I was a visiting student researcher at Stanford University, supervised by Professor Silvio Savarese. From 2010 to 2011, I worked as a research assistant at Academia Sinica, advised by Dr. Yu-Chiang Frank Wang.

Thanks to Google for a Fellowship supporting my research!
