Biography [CV]

I am currently a fully funded Master student major in Computer Science in the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I received my Bachelor of Science degree, major in Computer Science and Pure Mathematics Advanced, from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.

I was an intern in the Basemodel group of Megvii (Face++) advised by Xiangyu Zhang. My undergraduate Final Year Project supervisor is Prof. Chi Keung Tang. Previously, I was fortunate to work as a reseach assistant at Tencent YouTu advised by Prof. Yu-Wing Tai. Before that, I worked with Prof. Raymond Wong and I also worked in Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) in the USA. My bachelor advisor is Prof. Guowu Meng.

My research interest includes Machine Learning and Computer Vision. I am applying PhD.
