I am a Ph.D. student at Department of Electrical Engineering, Stanford University and a member of Stanford Computational Imaging Group. For my Ph.D. research, I am focusing on the development of computational imaging techniques for fluorescence optical microscopy and broadly interested in signal processing, machine learning and optimization. Particularly, most of my recent works focus on the end-to-end optimization of optical imaging systems, which involves machine learning and micro fabrication of an optical element. I also serve as a teaching assistant for EE267: Virtual Reality.

Before coming to Stanford University, I worked on new computational imaging techniques for fluorescence optical microscopy and a space telescope at MIT Media Lab and Centre de Mathématiques et Leurs Applications at École Normal Supérieure de Cachan (CMLA, ENS Cachan) in France. I also worked on an image processing algorithm for head-mount displays at the Google's Daydream team and a learning-based computational photography at the Google's Perception team as an intern.
