Ph.D. student in Electrical and Computer Engineering

Purdue University


I am a Ph.D. student in Elmore Family School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue University and working with Prof. Qi Guo. My research and internships allow me to witness that artificial intelligence have been involved in various aspects of human life. Therefore, I chose to specialize in computer vision as my research topic. In particular, my reserch goal is to develop novel cameras and the optimize the performance using machine learning methods.

Prior to Purdue, I completed my M.S. in Khoury College of Computer Sciences at Northeastern University under the supervision of Prof. Lawson L.S. Wong. Previously, I received my B.Eng. and M.S. in Department of Process Equipment and Control Engineering at Tianjin University, advised by Prof. Liyan Liu.
