About Me

I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Computer Science & Artificial Intelligence Lab of Massachusetts Institute of Technology, working with Prof. Dina Katabi. I obtained Ph.D. degree in ECE department from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. My supervisor was Prof. Dit-Yan Yeung. I was a visiting research scholar working with Prof. Abhinav Gupta in the Robotics Institute of Carnegie Mellon University. Before that, I received my B.S. degree in EE department from Huazhong University of Science and Technology.

Research Interests

  • Learning-based wireless sensing, with application to privacy-preserved healthcare and human sensing
  • General video understanding, including video object detection, temporal action localization and human action recognition
  • Learning with sequential data, e.g. speech, video, breathing
  • Deep learning, weakly-supervised learning, unsupervised or self-supervised learning
