I am working as a Member Technical Staff at Sarnoff Corporation. I got my PhD degree in Computer Science Department at the University of Southern California. My advisor is Dr. Gérard Medioni. I received my Bachelor degree in 2001 and Master degree in 2004 in Department of Computer Science, Tsinghua University, China. [Resume(pdf)]


My research interest includes computer vision, pattern recognition, Computer Graphics and image processing.
