I am a computer science PhD student at the University of Adelaide and supervised by Chunhua Shen .

(Google scholar)

Before I came to Adelaide, I was a visiting student at MMLAB of the Chinese University of Hong Kong at Shenzhen under the supervision of Dr.Weilin Huang and Prof.Yu Qiao. I got my master degree at School of Remote Sensing and Information Engineering at Wuhan University supervised by Prof.Jian Yao. Before that I got my B.Sc. degree from Tianjin University of Science and Technology. I am fortunate to work close with Zhi Tian.
