About Me

I am a 5th-year Ph.D. student at Rutgers University. I am fortunate to work with Prof. Waheed Bajwa. Before coming to Rutgers, I obtained my M.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from Duke University in 2011 and B.E. degree in Instrument Science and Engineering from Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 2009. My research interests include machine learning, statistical signal processing, big data analytics, and computer vision.
