I am a PhD student of Computer Science department at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill under the supervision of Prof. Alex Berg. I received my B.S. at Nanjing University at China in Jul. of 2009. Then, from Aug. 2009 to Jul. 2011, I worked as a research assistant at Carnegie Mellon University for two years with Prof. Fernando De la Torr and Prof. Alex Hauptmann. From Sep. 2011 to May 2012, I did one year PhD study at Computer Science department at UNC Chapel Hill under the supervision of Prof. Svetlana Lazebnik. From May 2012 to Aug. 2012, I was a research intern at the Core Location team under iOS Department at Apple, and I presented my project to SVP Scott Forstall. From Sep. 2012 to Aug. 2013, I did one year PhD study at Computer Science department at Stony Brook University under the supervision of Prof. Alex Berg, then I moved with him back to UNC Chapel Hill in Aug. 2013. I did a great internship at Google Mountain View in 2014 summer. Our team GoogLeNet won the classification and detection challenge in ILSVRC2014. My research speciality is computer vision. The main focus of my current research include:
  • Abrige the semantic gap of image understanding with deep neural networks
  • Recognize and detect objects from large scale image and video dataset
