About Me


I am a PhD student in ECE at University of Waterloo, advised by Prof. Zhou Wang. I obtained my BASc. and MASc. degree in ECE department from University of Waterloo in 2015 and 2017, respectively.

My research interests include Quality of Experience, Adaptive Streaming and Image/Video Quality Assessment.
