I am currently working as a Senior Key Expert Scientist in the Vision Technologies and Solutions group at Siemens Corporate Research in Princeton, NJ. Before joining Siemens, I received my Ph.D. degree in Computer and Systems Engineering from Department of Electrical, Computer and Systems Engineering, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in May 2014. My advisor is  Professor Richard J. Radke.

My research interests are computer vision and machine learning, with special focus on object detection and tracking, anomaly detection, augmented reality, scene understanding, human re-identification and camera and calibration. I was affiliated with DHS Center of Excellence on Awareness and Localization of Explosives-Related Threats (ALERT) as a PhD researcher from 2009 to 2014.

I was born in Guangzhou, China. Before coming to US, I have spent seven years in Beijing where I received my M.Eng degree in Measurement Technology and Instruments, and B.Eng degree in Electrical Engineering and Automation, both from Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics (BUAA), in 2006 and 2009 respectively.
