About me

I am starting my Ph.D. at Stanford University's Computer Science Department in September. I am currently an undergraduate senior at Stanford. I am supervised by Silvio Savarese in CVGL/SVL. I also had the luck to collborate with Leo Guibas, Jitendra Malik and Juan Carlos Niebles on various projects. My research interests lie in Computer Vision (generic perception in particular) and robotics learning.

  • 2018.02 Admitted to Stanford University CS Ph.D.!

  • 2017.11 New paper submitted to CVPR 2018. Coming soon.
