Short Bio

I am currently an associated researcher in  Visual Computing Group at Microsoft Research Asia (MSRA). Before I joined MSRA in 2014, I received the BS degree and the PhD degree from Tsinghua University with honor in 2009 and 2014 respectively. I was also a visiting student to University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) from 2012 to 2013. My research interests include computer vision and pattern recognition.
