Welcome to my homepage


I am an incoming Ph.D. student in Computer Science at School of Computing, National University of Singapore, fully supported by President’s Graduate Fellowship. Recently, I received my Master degree in Computer Technology at Tsinghua Shenzhen International Graduate School, Tsinghua University, supervised by Prof. Chun Yuan. My research interests are in Computer Vision and Computer Graphics. Before that, I received my Bachelor degree in Software Engineering from School of Computer Science & Technology, Beijing Institute of Technology.
