About Me

I am a fourth year Ph.D. student in Department of Computer Science at UC Berkeley, advised by Professor Trevor Darrell. My research focuses on computer vision and machine learning. In particular, I am interested in fine-grained categorization and leveraging deep learning methods for computer vision tasks.

Before coming to the Bay Area, I graduated from Tsinghua University with a B.S. in Computer Science in June 2010, working with Professor Jie Tang. I have spent summers at Facebook AI Research, working with Dr. Lubomir Bourdev.
