About Me

I am a graduate student at Georgia Tech. Previously, I am fortunate to study at PKU and SCUT. I have the great pleasure to work with and learn from many talented researchers.


My research interest broadly lies in machine learning and computer vision. My research goal is to tackle challenging problems, and develop "light-and-sweet" methods: (i) light: conceptually simple and easy to implement in practice, (ii) sweet: having clear intuitions or non-trivial theoretical guarantees.


"Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler."    - Albert Einstein
