I am a final year PhD student at UNC Chapel Hill, working on vision and language. My advisors are Tamara L. Berg and Mohit Bansal.

I earned my bachelor's degree in computer science from Yingcai Honors College, University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC) in 2017. I worked at Nanyang Technological University with Sinno Jialin Pan, and University of Manitoba with Yang Wang.
