Hi! I am a second-year Ph.D. student in the Machine Learning Program of Georgia Institute of Technology, advised by Prof. James Rehg and co-advised by Prof. Zsolt Kira. Prior to starting my Ph.D., I got my Master's degree majoring in ECE and Bachelor's degree majoring in Information Engineering from Shanghai Jiao Tong University. I worked with Prof. Ya Zhang during my master.

My research interests lie in Video Understanding, Multi-Modal Learning and general machine learning algorithms. Currently, I'm working on gaze estimation on egocentric videos and audio-visual fusion to understand human interactions with the world.
