I am a fourth year Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Science, University of California, Santa Barbara. I have been working with Prof. Xifeng Yan since Fall 2010. Before coming to UCSB, I received my B.S. in EE from the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in 2010. I was very lucky to win the Regents' Special Fellowship to support my graduate study in UCSB. Please find more about me in the CV.
