My research interests lie in the areas of multimedia data mining and statistical machine learning. I am pretty much interested in building practical and innovative multimedia systems to solve real-world problems. I am recently interested in solving domian specific problems by combining deep neural network and domian knowledge.

When I was not around UST, I relax myself by hiking, taking photographs and traveling. I am also very interested in quantitative trading and did interships at some hedge funds.
