I am currently a final-year Ph.D student in Artificial Intelligence Department of Xiamen University. My advisor is Prof. Rongrong Ji. I received the B.S. Degree in Artificial Intelligence Department from Xiamen University in 2014. I obtained the M.S.-Ph.D. qualification and finished my M.S. in Xiamen University in 2016.

My research interests are in computer vision, multimedia and machine learning, especially in structured semantic modeling and its representation learning, vision-language/multimedia content understanding, and their applications (like multimedia sentiment analysis and interpretable medical image diagnosis).
