About Me

I am currently a PhD student in MMLab@NTU supervised by Prof. Chen Change Loy. I obtained M.S. degree in Artifical Intelligence in Nanyang Technological University, advised by Prof. Chen Change Loy and Prof. Chongyi Li. Before this, I obtained B.S. degree in Intelligence Science and Technology from Peking University in 2020, supervised by Prof. Zhouchen Lin and visited the University of Michigan working with Prof. Qiaozhu Mei and Prof. Ji Zhu. .

I am interested in computational photography and computer graphics. My current work mainly focuses on image restoration and nighttime flare removal.
