About me

I'm a Research Scientist at Waymo (formerly the Google self-driving car project). I received my Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University. I was co-advised by Prof. Juan Carlos Niebles and Prof. Silvio Savarese in Stanford Vision and Learning Lab. Prior to studying at Stanford, I obtained my B.Sc. degree in Physics from Peking University.

My research interests include human activity understanding, video analysis, 3D vision, and general computer vision and machine learning.
