About Me

I am a fifth-year bachelor-straight-to-PhD student in National Laboratory of Pattern Recognition in the Institute of Automation, Chinese Academic of Sciences. My supervisor is Prof. Stan Z. Li. Before that, I received the B. Eng degree from School of Communication and Information Engineering in University of Electronic Science and Technology of China in 2015.

My research interest includes machine learning and pattern recognition, with a focus on generic object detection, face detection, pedestrian detection and video detection.
