About Me

I am a second-year PhD student in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, Northeastern University, advised by Prof. Yun Raymond Fu. Prior to this, I obtained my bachelor degree from Huazhong University of Science and Technology. My research interests include Computer Vision and Deep Learning, especially Dynamic Networks and Model Efficiency.

Research Interests

  • Efficient Image and Video Recognition.
  • Deep Learning for Image Segmentation.


  • 2023.02: We have one paper accepted by CVPR 2023. Favorite so far.
  • 2022.10: I have received NeurIPS 2022 scholar award.
  • 2022.09: We have two papers accepted by NeurIPS 2022.
  • 2021.09: Begin my journey at SMILE Lab, Northeastern University.
