Short Bio

I'm a third year Ph.D. student under the supervision of Prof. Qixing Huang in the Department of Computer Science at The University of Texas at Austin. I received my B.S. degree from the Department of Computer Science at Peking University in 2019 with First Class Honours. I also spent time at Stanford, CMU, and UCLA before.

My research interests are in self-supervised learning and point cloud processing.

National Athletes, Level five in Amateur of Go(Weiqi)

I received the certificate of National Athletes of Go in 2013 and the certificate of Level Five in Amateur in 2010. I enjoy the variable possibilities between the black and white chess. I can always dive into the game of Go for the whole day. This kind of pure competition really attracts me!

Good at all kinds of sports

I love playing ping-pong, basketball, swimming, and badminton. The tension brought by the competitions makes me crazy:)
