I have research background in computer vision, machine learning, natural language processing, geographic information system, location based services, and social network mining. Currently my research interests lie in the field of interactions with multiple modalities such as the audio and the visual sense. I intend to create systems which enchance natural and seamless interactions between human and smart objects in daily life.

Curriculum Vitae

I joined the Distributed Systems Group in March 2017 as a PhD student. Before that, I received my B.Eng degree in Measuring and Control Technology and Instruments from Tianjin University in July 2014, and graduated with the Bachelor thesis Enhancement Algorithms for X-ray Images. In January 2017, I received my M.Sc degree in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology from D-ITET, ETH Zürich, and graduated with the Master thesis Semantic Place Annotation.

From September 2015 to February 2016, I worked as a software engineer intern at Schindler Elevator Ltd. in Ebikon, Switzerland. From November 2016 to January 2017, I worked as a research intern in the Social Computing Group at Idiap Research Institute in Martigny, Switzerland.
