I'm a 2nd-year Ph.D. student at the Berkeley Artificial Intelligence Research (BAIR) Lab at University of California, Berkeley, advised by Prof. Trevor Darrell. My research interests lie in the field of Computer Vision and Machine Learning, particularly in enabling intelligent agents perceive, comprehend and reason with less direct supervision. I'm also affiliated with Facebook AI Research (FAIR) in collaboration with Piotr Dollár and Ross Girshick. Prior to UC Berkeley, I collaborated with Bolei Zhou on a series of works, and was mentored by Yuning Jiang and supervised by Jian Sun.
I graduated from Peking University (PKU) in 2019, the most progressive university in China, summa cum laude with a Bachelor's degree. I started computer programming in primary school and had been participating in programming contests throughout high school and college. I received China National Scholarship in 2016 and was selected as a 2019 Snap Research Scholar for my research and curriculum.
I have a great fondness for arts besides my academic work. I'm deeply passionate about musical works, especially those in classical music (both instrumental & vocal) and jazz. I'm also into laws & public policies. I'm a political activist in both the U.S. and my home country.
