I am a Ph.D. student at City University of Hong Kong under the supervision of Prof. Rynson W.H. Lau. My research lies in the areas of computer graphics, vision, and machine learning. Recently I'm interested in Data-Driven Graphic Design, especially based on deep learning models.

Before starting my Ph.D. study, I spent three wonderful years in South China University of Technology and received my B.Eng degree in 2015. I then participated in the Mitacs Reseach internship at Western University from July to October 2015.

I am currently a visiting scholar in the Visual Computing Group (VCG) at Harvard University, advised by Prof. Hanspeter Pfister.
