Currently I am a second year graduate student of Department of Artificial Intelligence in Nanjing University and a member of LAMDA Group, led by Prof. Zhi-Hua Zhou.

I graduated with Distinction of School Honors and got my B.Sc. degree from Nanjing University in June 2019. In the same year, I was admitted to the M.Sc. in Computer Science program (thesis track) at Nanjing University via Exempt Admissions, i.e. admission without the Postgraduate Admission Test.

Research Interest

My research interests include Computer Vision and Machine Learning.


  1. Beyond size: how the appearance of the receptive field can affect the performance of a convolutional neural network.

Personal Project

  1. Bokken: A Toy-level Deep Learning Library Based on NumPy and CuPy

    • Capable of Training a PreActResNet-18 on CIFAR-10
    • May Used for Educational Purposes

    This toy project has not been open-sourced yet due to my plan to use it for teaching (as the code base for a course project). If anyone is interested and wants to see a copy, feel free to email me.
