I am currently an Associate Professor at the College of Intelligence and Computing, Tianjin University, China. I received my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in Jun. 2014. From 2012 to 2013, I was a joint Ph.D. student at the Intelligent Systems Lab, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, USA. From 2017 to 2018, I was a Research Fellow at the Multimedia and Interactive Computing Lab, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.
Update Several positions are available for highly motivated students who are interested in pursuing Master or Ph.D degrees in the areas of Machine Learning and Pattern Recognition. Please feel free to contact me if you are interested.
