About me

I received the B.Eng. degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) from The University of Sheffield, UK, in 2018, and M.Sc. degrees in Electrical Engineering (EE) from Columbia University, USA, in 2020. Currently, I am a PhD Candidate in Computer Science under the supervision of Prof. Sijia Liu.

Research Focuses

  • Deep Learning: Adversarial Learning (adversarial attack & defense), Computer Vision (image classification, object detection/tracking)

  • Optimization: Sparse optimization for deep model compress, Zeroth-order black-box optimization
