I am an associate professor in the school of Computer Science at Beijing Institute of Technology (BIT). I received my Ph.D in computer science from BIT in 2005.  I worked as a visiting professor at  Song-Chun Zhu 's Vision Cognition Learning and Autonomous  (VCLA) in 2014 and 2015.  My research interests lie in the field of Computer Vision, Statistical Inference, VR for training and education, and Cognitive Science.
