I’m an Assistant Professor in the School of Computing and a faculty fellow at the Institute for Artificial Intelligence at the University of Georgia. I’m also a Lilly Teaching Fellow.

Previously, I was a Postdoctoral Associate at Cornell Tech, working with Prof. Noah Snavely. I received my PhD degree in Computer Science from the University of Maryland. My PhD advisor is Prof. David Jacobs. I was in a 3+2 program where I received a Master’s degree in Computer and Information Science from Temple University and my Bachelor’s degree in Automation from the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC). My advisor in Temple was Prof. Haibin Ling.

My research area is computer vision–understanding our world using visual data with the help of state-of-the-art deep learning models. In particular, I’m passionate about understanding people in diverse and complex environment using images and videos. I believe A.I. can and should be developed to improve people’s quality of life.
