I am currently a Ph.D. student of the SketchX Research Lab in Center for Vision, Speech and Signal Processing at University of Surrey, jointly supervised by Dr. Yi-Zhe Song and Dr. Yongxin Yang. And I also collaborate closely with Dr. Timothy Hospedales from the University of Edinburgh.

My research interests include Computer Vision and Deep Learning, particularly in Sketch and its novel applications.
