I'm a PhD student at the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department
of Rice University, working with
My research lies at the intersection of computer vision and computational photography.
I believe future intelligent systems and interactive medium rely on the full visual sensing and understanding of the environment. Therefore, my research aims to 1) build computational cameras with co-designed optics and learning-based algorithms to achieve the imaging modality, performance or efficiency beyond conventional cameras. 2) leverage both physics-based image formation model and data-drvien deep learning to solve problems in visual understanding and reconstruction.
I'm partially supported by a Texas Instruments Distinguished Graduate Student Fellowship. Thank you, TI!
