Welcome to my personal webpage!

I am graduate student in Language Technologies Institue (LTI), School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. My research interest includes machine learning application, multimedia semantic analysis, spoken language processing.

I received my Bachelor degree in Electrical Engineering from Tsinghua University in 2012. I worked in Microsoft(Beijing) Speech group as a research intern during 2012 Feb to 2012 July. More details can refer to my CV.

Activities Beyond Academia

  • My childhood dream is to become a journalist. I published multiple literature articles on the school magzine when I was in high school. I finally realized my dream by joining the campus newspaper after I entered into college. It provides me many opportunities to interview the students or faculties with interesting stories. I feel happy to help people by making their voice heard.

  • I am a sports fan. I started to practice martial arts since I was in middle school and won several prizes in the matches in college. I learned a lot beyond building the body, including the rich tradional Chinese culture and the spirit of courage and peaceful mind in facing challenges. I once completed half marathon in 2010 fall.

  • I enjoy travel, which provides a way to listen to the voice in my heart when emerging into a strange environment. I love painting and received formal training when I was young. But as I grow up, I start to realize that the real beauty origins from people's heart and creative view to discover the world rather than the fancy skills.
