About Me

I'm a 4th year undergraduate student in the Department of Computer Science & Engineering of Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) and very proud of being a member of the ACM Honored Class. I joined the Center for Brain-Like Computing and Machine Intelligence in July, 2009.

I will move to Columbia University for my Ph.D. in Fall 2011.
