 About Me  

   I am currently a fifth year Ph.D. student in Computer Vision at UIUC, working with Prof. Derek Hoiem.

   I was a summer intern student at University of California, Los Angeles in 2013, working with Prof. Alan Yuille on 3D scene estimation. 
I interned at Google DayDream (summer 2015), Adobe Research (summer 2016), Zillow 3D vision team (summer 2017) and Nvidia Research (summer 2018).  

   Before joining UIUC in August 2014, I received my B.S. degree of Computer Science in Zhejiang University, China. During then I worked as a research intern in State Key Laboratory of CAD & CG, under the supervision of Prof. Deng Cai.
