I am currently a Ph.D. student (2020-) at EEE, The University of Hong Kong, advised by Dr. Xiaojuan Qi. Before that I obtained my B.Eng. degree in the School of Software Engineering at Tsinghua University in 2020.

My research interests focus on 3D vision and embodied AI.

I am looking for research positions for fall 2024. Please contact me if you are interested.
