About Me

I'm currently an MS student in Department of ECE and a graduate researcher in ES-CAD group at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, advised by Professor Deming Chen. Before that, I received my B.S. in Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications in 2018.

My currently research interests are deep learning algorithms for computer vision, especially saliency prediction, visual tracking and energy-efficient computing for hardwares.
