I am a fifth year Ph.D student at Language Technology Institute, School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University, working on the Informedia Project with my advisor Alex G. Hauptmann. Prior to that, I completed my M.S. and B.S. program at Zhejiang University.

My research interests include Multimedia (video) Analysis and Retrieval, Machine Learning, and Text/Data Mining.

My hobbies are nature photography & travel, classical music, documentary, bicycling, basketball, tennis, and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
