About MeI am currently a second-year PhD student in computer science at UCLA, advised by Prof. Song-Chun Zhu. Previously, I was an undergraduate in the Department of Electrical Engineering in Shanghai Jiao Tong University, advised by Prof. Xinbing Wang and Prof. Weinan Zhang. My research interests lie in multi-modal reasoning, concept learning and structure learning.
