About Me

I am a fifth year Ph.D. student at the Computer Science Department, UNC-Chapel Hill, under the supervision of Professor Marc Niethammer. My research interests are including Medical Image Analysis, Machine Learning and Computer Vision.

I obtained both my M.S. and B.E. degrees in Computer Science at Sichuan University. I was a visiting student at SIAT, Chinese Academy of Sciences.

Looking for a full-time R&D position!
