About Me


I am a third year PhD student in Computer Science at Brown University, my advisor is James Hays. In 2012, I had the opportunity to work with Jue Wang and Sunghyun Cho as a summer intern at Adobe Research, Seattle.

My research interest lies in data-driven methods in computational photography and computer vision, with a focus on developing example-based, expressive image priors suitable for restoration and synthesis tasks.

I graduated from Swarthmore College with a double-major in computer science and mathematics in 2010. Prior to that, I spent four years at Raffles Institituion/Junior College in Singapore as an MOE scholar. I grew up in Wuhan, China, where I attended Wuhan Foreign Languages School.
