I am currently a joint-training Ph.D. student (or called visiting scholar) in the IFP (Image Formation and Processing) group of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, advised by Prof. Thomas S. Huang. I am also a Ph.D. student in the Institute of Intelligent Media Computing at Fudan University, under the supervision of Prof. Yu-Gang Jiang and Prof. Xiangyang Xue. From July 2016 to July 2017, I was a research intern at Intel Labs China.

My research focuses on the broad area of computer vision and machine learning. Specifically, I am interested in deep learning methods for object detection, fine-grained recognition, image/video captioning, etc. Recently, I focus on
- Deep Learning, including designing and training high-efficiency network structure
- Video Analysis, including detection, captioning, summarization and prediction
- Image Understanding, including visual question answering, captioning, fine-grained recognition and detection
- Weakly-supervised/Unsupervised Learning
- Low-bit Networks
