About Me


I recently passed the PhD denfense in the Electrical & Computer Engineering department at University of Waterloo. I obtained my BASc. and MASc. degree in Department of Automation from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China in 2011 and 2014, respectively.

My research interests include Perceptual Quality Assessment of Images and Videos, Quality of Experience, and Adaptive Streaming.

I am actively looking for a research job in industry.
