Short Bio

I am a Research Scientist in Facebook Reality Labs (FRL). I finished my Ph.D in Computer Science in The University of Texas at Austin in 2021, supervised by Prof. Danna Gurari. I obtained my bachelor degree at Tsinghua University in 2015. I have also spent time in Adobe Research and University of Toronto.

My research interests lie in Computer Vision and Deep Learning.
