About Me

I'm a 5th year PhD student at Indiana University Bloomington. My research interests include computer vision, machine learning, and other fun topics. My advisor is Prof. David Crandall, and I also work with Prof. Devi Parikh and Prof. Dhruv Batra. Before coming to IU, I was an undergraduate student at BUPT from 2005 to 2009.
