I am a computer science PhD student at the University of Adelaide and supervised by Chunhua Shen .

(Google scholar)

Before I came to Adelaide, I was a visiting student at MSRA under the supervision of Prof.Jingdong Wang. I got my master degree and my B.Sc. degree at School of Automation Science and Electrical Engineering at Beihang University supervised by Prof.Zengchang Qin.
