I am a Researcher at ByteDance (Toutiao) AI Lab in Menlo Park, CA. Before that, I was a Senior Research Scientist at Adobe Research. I obtained my Ph.D. degree in the Department of EECS at Northwestern University in June 2013, advised by Prof. Ying Wu. I previously had summer internships at Adobe in 2012 and 2011, and at Nokia Research Center (Santa Monica, CA) in 2010. I received my B.S. and M.S. degrees from the Department of Automation at Tsinghua University, China.


I am generally interested in the research topics in the area of Computer Vision, particularly semantic segmentation, depth prediction, object detection and recognition, image editing and deep learning-related problems.
