About

I am a third-year PhD student in the School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering at the University of Queensland, Australia. I am now under the supervision of Prof. Brian C. Lovell and Dr. Arnold Wiliem.

I received my bachelor's degree from the South China University of Technology in 2015. During my undergraduate study, I spent one year as an exchange student at the University of Queensland and working on my thesis project, Advanced FPGA design with ZedBoard, with Dr. Adam Postula.

My current works focus on object detection and related medical applications.

I'm now looking for internship. Please contact me if you have available positions.

More About Me

I like playing badminton, dancing and photograhing.

During my undergraduate study, I was the Head of Social Event Team at the Student Union of School of Electronic & Information Engineering, SCUT, 2011-2013. We organzied the welcome events and annual ball for more than 500 students every year.

In the summer of 2012, I was lucky to be a short-term volunteer teacher in a rural region of China. My role was teaching English and dancing.
