I am a Research Scientist at the On-Device AI team at Facebook Reality Labs.

I graduated with a Ph.D. degree from Purdue University advised by Prof. Jan P. Allebach.

I received my Bachelor's degree from Tsinghua University in 2015.

My research focuses on deep learning for image and video enhancement, face alignment and recognition.
