Currently, I am a graduate student at University of Rochester , Department of Computer Science, pursuing PhD degree. My advisor is Prof. Jiebo Luo. Before coming to UR, I got my bachelor degree at University of Science and Technology of China, Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Science (0806).


My research interests include deep learning, vision & language, image annotation and video analytics.
