Ph.D. student

ZJU3DV | Zhejiang University


I’m a fifth-year (2018-) Ph.D. student in the 3D Vision Group, State Key Lab of CAD & CG, Zhejiang University (ZJU), supervised by Prof. Hujun Bao and Prof. Guofeng Zhang. I obtained my bachelor's degree in Computer Software Engineering from University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC) in 2018.

Currently, I am a visiting researcher in the Computer Vision and Geometry Group (CVG), ETH Zurich, advised by Prof. Marc Pollefeys. My research area lies in the field of Computer Vision, Computer Graphics, and Machine Learning, particularly in 3D Vision. My research goal is to make computers (robotics) learn to perceive, localize, reconstruct, reason, and interact with the real world.
