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. During my Ph.D. I have been fortunate to intern at Codec Avatars Lab, Meta with Israel D. Gebru and Alexander Richard. I am honored to collaborate with David Fouhey, Justin Salamon and Bryan Russell.

Audio in Metaverse
Multimodal Learning

My research so far has focused on audio-visual learning, multimodal learning (vision, audio, language, touch) and computer vision with self-supervision. Still, I am open to other topics as well.
