M.Sc. in Computer Science

ETH Zürich


I am currently pursuing my Master’s Degree of Computer Science at ETH Zurich, Switzerland, where I have been working with Prof. Fisher Yu at the VIS Group of Computer Vision Lab (ETH Zurich) on multi-task vision learning and Dr. Iro Armeni on 3D point cloud perception. My research interests lie primarily in the area of computer vision with an emphasis on robustness and multi-task learning.

Previously, I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree of Software Engineering from Tongji University, where I closely worked with Prof. Yin Wang in computer vision. I also got supervision from Research Scientist Dr. Saikat Basu of Facebook in a research collaboration.
