Mini Demo: the World and Me, my UG Education.

I am currently a MPhil student in Computer Science at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, supervised by Prof. QU Huamin.

I obtained my Bachelor degree of Engineering from HKUST with the Academic Achievement Medal (top 1%), with double major in Electronic Engineering and Computer Science, and triple minor in Mathematics, Big Data Technology and Humanities. I believe that academic enrichment is the core of undergraduate education, which motivates my studiousness and enthusiasm for interdisciplinary studies. I also went to ETH Zurich and Utrecht University for regular academic exchange.

My research interests include Data Visualization for Big Data and Computer Vision applications. I hope to facilitate our understanding of the world and discover hidden knowledge through mining and visualizing massive data in a refreshed perspective.

I love to explore the world and have travelled to more than 20 countries.
