Master Student at Cornell (Seeking full-time job)


About Me

I'm a Master student in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Cornell University. Now I'm actively seeking full-time engineering developer job.

I was an intern at Software Analytics Group of Microsoft Research Asia. I was a research intern at University of British Columbia, supervised by Prof. Zheng Liu. I was a 2nd Prize winner at 2017 Microsoft Beauty of Programming. I finished my undergraduate degree at Wuhan University.

My interests include: applied machine learning, backend devlopment and computer vision applications.
