I have research background in computer vision, machine learning, natural language processing, geographic information system, location based services, and social network mining. Currently I conduct research about eye tracking, gaze recognition, and human computer interaction, which I intend to utilize in museum visiting and smart home appliance.

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.

During my previous study and work, I have two papers published on ACM SIGSPATIAL 2015 main conference and a workshop, namely, Learning Functional Composition of Urban Spaces with Crowd-Augmented Travel Survey Data and Informative Yet Unrevealing: Semantic Obfuscation for Location Based Services.
