I am a graduate student in the department of Computer Science at the University of Maryland, College Park. I am currently working on optimization, machine learning and various applications.
My recent interests are: adaptive stepsize in optimization, primal-dual method in optimization, neural network acceleration, generative adversarial networks for vision and language, deep representation for images, and distributed optimization.
I am also interested in some topics I have previously worked with: low rank and sparse models, domain adaptation in computer vision, topic models and tensor methods, NER and information extraction, image retrieval, and mining information from large-scale multimedia data.
Before joining Maryland, I was a Project Officer at Visual Computing Research Group, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. I received my M.Eng. and B.Eng. in the Department of Electronic Engineering and Information Science, the University of Science and Technology of China . During my study as a master student, I was fortunate to take a long-term internship at Microsoft Research Asia.
I have interned/collaborated with companies: Apple, Adobe, Honda, Amazon, IBM, Rolls-Royce and Microsoft.
