Previously, I graduated with a bachelor's degree in computer science from Zhejiang University, China. During my undergraduate study, I mainly under the supervision of Prof. Deng Cai in the State Key Laboratory of CAD & CG. I was a summer intern at UCLA in 2011, mainly work with Prof. Jenn Wortman Vaughan.

I am interested in the exploration and analysis of intelligence with different tools, as well as the design and application of intelligent algorithms to solve problems in the real world.

December 2011 -- January 2012
Worked on approximating a matrix with low rank, especially the nonnegative matrix factorization technique. Inspired in part by the Fused Lasso, I proposed a new regularization framework to penalize the basis vectors, and developed an algorithm to solve the general optimization problem.
October 2011 -- November 2011
Worked on learning a distance metric with side information. As the project leader, I quickly learned most state-of-the-art metric learning algorithms and proposed a new algorithm specially designed for images, which achieves a significant improvement.
July 2011 -- November 2011
Working on a joint program of UCLA and UMass, which seeks to automatically forward a question to some appropriate scientists, and detect time variations of user interests. I take part in both the design and implementation of the proposed model. The project is on-going.
February 2011--May 2011
Worked on extending the probabilistic canonical correlation analysis (PCCA) to a multi-view learning framework. The generated representation has a property of structured sparsity which enables it to extract both shared and view-dependent information. I participated in both the modeling and the experimentation part.
February 2011--May 2011
Worked on incorporating dimension reduction and clustering into a coherent procedure based on graph Laplacian. I proposed an iterative algorithm which seeks an intrinsically similar, but more robust, low-dimensional representation than its counterpart in spectral clustering.
August 2010--January 2011
Worked on accelerating the spectral clustering algorithm while preserving its high accuracy. Adopting the idea of landmark representation and singular value decomposition (SVD), I proposed a scalable method which has linear time complexity while still preserves good performance.
Interested in playing words in a sentence, in both Chinese and English.
Color-blind, with no exsisting algorithm to enhance my ability to distinguish colors.
