I am a third-year Ph.D. student in Computer Vision at the University of Michigan, advised by Andrew Owens. Before that, I was a Master's student in UMich ECE (2021) and I did my bachelor's degree at UM-SJTU Joint Institute from Shanghai Jiao Tong University (2019).
My primary research interest lies in Computer Vision and Deep Learning. I have spent wonderful years in computer vision group @ Michigan. I am honored to collaborate with Prof. David Fouhey in 2021.

I am actively looking for internships in 2024 Summer, feel free to contact me if you are interested in.

Audio in Metaverse
Multimodal Learning

My research so far has focused on self-supervised computer vision methods that learn from the sound and learning from unlabeled data. Still, I am open to other topics as well.
