About Me

I have graduated from the University of Alberta with my PhD degree in 2018. I received my M.Sc. degree in Computer Science from Memorial University of Newfoundland in 2014, and my B.Eng. degree from the School of Information Science and Technology at the University of Science and Technology of China in 2012.

I do research in the areas of computer vision, computer graphics and machine learning. My PhD research has focused on image-based rendering, and 3D shape reconstruction.

Note: I have graduated so I will lose access to my ualberta email very soon. This website will also become inaccessiable soon.
