Currently, I am a fifth year Ph.D. student of Computer Science Department (CS) in George Mason University (GMU). I am advised by Dr. Yotam Gingold at Creativity and Graphics Lab (CraGL). I obtained my Bachelor degree from Electronic Engineering and Information Science Department (EEIS) in University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) at July 2013. My undergraduate research advisor is Dr. Xuejin Chen.

My research interests are image & video processing, computer graphics, and computer vision. Currently, I am focusing on decomposing images or time-lapse painting videos into more editable data structures, like layers, to make image editing much easier. More generally, I am interested in the application of geometry of color spaces and image edits. I am also interested in applying deep learning techniques to solve color related problems, such as recoloring, harmonization and colorization.

Here is my: Resume, Github and Google Scholar.
