PhD Student in Computer Vision

State University of New York at Buffalo


I am currently a second-year PhD student at the State University of New York at Buffalo, where I am advised by Prof. Junsong Yuan and Prof. David Doermann. Prior to this, I received my B.Eng in Computer Science from Xi’an Jiaotong University (XJTU) in 2020. During my undergraduate study at XJTU, I was fortunate to be advised by Dr. Ziyi Liu and Prof. Le Wang at the Institue of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics.
