I am currently a Fifth-Year Ph.D. candidate at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Carnegie Mellon University. Before that I obtained the M.Phil. degree from The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in 2012. I graduated from the Elite Class of EE, South China University of Technology in 2008.

My current research interests mainly focus on discriminative feature learning and structured prediction, with their applications to holistic scene understanding and autonomous driving. I'm also interested in machine learning problems related to spectral clustering and graph density estimation.

I am the awardee of the 2009-2010/2011-2012 HKTIIT Post-Graduate Excellence Scholarships and Carnegie Institute of Technology Dean's Tuition Fellowship.

I am the committee member of VALSE Online Director Board (VODB) and VALSE Online Organization Committee (VOOC), an elite academic discussion platform with many famous Chinese researchers and promising students in computer vision / machine learning.  The group regularly holds paper reading webinars / invited talks on a weekly basis.
