Ph.D. Student

University of Florida


I am currently a Ph.D. student at the University of Florida under the supervision of Prof. Sanjay Ranka and Prof. Anand Rangarajan . I got my bachelor’s degree and master’s degree at Sun Yat-Sen University in 2018 and 2020 respectively under the supervision of Dr. Dong Zhang. My research interests lie in applying deep learning to solve practical problems. In particular, I have been developing deep learning models in the applications of computer vision. I am also broadly interested in questions related to programming and engineering. My current research focuses on smart traffic analysis and management based on LIDAR and ground sensor data.
