Biography

I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Science, City University of Hong Kong (CityU), supervised by Prof. Rynson W.H. Lau. Before that, I received the B.Eng. and M.Sc. from the College of Information Science & Electronic Engineering, Zhejiang University (ZJU) in 2013 and 2016 separately. I worked as an intern at Institute of Automation of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CASIA) in 2012. My research interests are in the areas of computer vision, graphics, and deep learning. Recently, I study "how computers can understand the layouts of natural scenes or graphic designs".
