Advised by Prof. Takeo Kanade, I graduated with my Ph.D. in Robotics from the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University in May, 2014. I obtained my M.S. degree in Robotics from CMU in August 2011. Prior to my study and research at CMU, I received my M.S. degree with honor in Electronic Engineering from Fudan University in July 2008. In July 2005, I graduated with a B.S. degree in Electronic Engineering, also from Fudan University.

I was born in Shanghai, the largest and modernest city in China. Before coming to the U.S., I lived in Shanghai for most of the time.
