I am a PhD candidate from CSE Department, HKUST, supervised by Prof. Huamin Qu. I have been working on the VisMOOC project since 2014 and won HKICT and APICT Awards. I received my B.Eng degree in Digital Media Technology, CS Department, ZJU in 2013.

Currently, I am working as a visiting PhD student with Prof. Jean-Daniel in the Aviz Team of Inria, France.
In my free time, I enjoy reading, watching movies, sketching, doing sports, and travelling. I love exploring different languages and cultures. I can communicate in four languages (Mandarin, English, Japanese, Cantonese) and I am learning French now:P
