I am now a Software Engineer at Waymo Perception.
I received my Ph.D. degree from Toyota Technological Institute at Chicago (TTIC) in 2021, advised by Prof. Greg Shakhnarovich. Before that, I got my Bachelor degree from Shanghai Jiao Tong University IEEE Honor Class, where I worked with Prof. Yuncai Liu and Prof. Xinbing Wang.
My research interests involved Computer Vision and its combination with Language.
My CV is here.
