Short Bio

I am a second-year PhD student at the College of Engineering and Computer Science, Australian National University, where I am supervised by Stephen Gould and Liang Zheng. Befor that, I received the M.Eng. from the University of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2019, advised by Prof. Jianbin Jiao. I obtained the B.Eng. from Beijing Jiaotong University in 2016, advised by Dr. Jupeng Li.

Research interest my general research interest is to develop deep learning model for computer vision tasks (e.g., fine-grained object recognition). Recently, I focus on the dataset bias, understaning the model decision under novel environments. Please check our [recent work].
