I am currently a post-doctoral researcher at the Johns Hopkins University (JHU), under the supervision of Prof. Alan Yuille. Our lab, named the Computational Cognition, Vision, and Learning (CCVL), was previously located at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). My research interests include Computer Vision, Multimedia Information Retrieval and Machine Learning. I have a lot of research work on generic image classification, image retrieval and fine-grained object recognition. Recently, I have been working on deep learning, especially the models based on the Convolutional Neural Network (CNN). I am also interested in medical imaging analysis, especially tissue segmentation in CT or fMRI scans.

Before I went to UCLA, I obtained my B.E. and Ph.D. degrees from Tsinghua University, under the supervision of Prof. Bo Zhang and Prof. Qi Tian from University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA). I also served as a research intern at Microsoft Research Asia (MSRA), under the supervision of Dr. Jingdong Wang.
