I am currently a fourth-year Ph.D student in the 3D Vision lab of the Department of Computer science, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. My advisor is Prof. Jan-Michael Frahm. My research interests lie in Computer Vision and Machine Learning.

I obtained my bachelor's degree from Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2016. I was in ACM Honored Class (a pilot computer science class in China) and did research in BCMI lab supervised by Prof. Hongtao Lu
