I am a third-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Hong Kong, advised by Prof. Kenneth K.Y. Wong and Dr. Kai Han. Before that, I obtained my B.E. degree from Huazhong University of Science and Technology.

My research interests focus on computer vision and machine learning, especially exploring better representation that aligns visual and textual concepts for both generative and discriminative problems.

I am actively seeking internship opportunities!


  • [Mar 2024] One paper, CiPR, about generalized category discovery is finally accepted to TMLR.

  • [Sep 2023] One paper about controllable generation is accepted to NeurIPS 2023.

  • [Feb 2023] One paper about compositional zero-shot learning is accepted to CVPR 2023.

  • [Jul 2022] One paper about masked face recognition is accepted to ICIP 2022.

  • [Sep 2021] I start my Ph.D. journey at HKU.
