Hey, thanks for stopping by! 👋

I am a final-year PhD candidate in the Department of Computer Science at Durham University, supervised by Prof Toby Breckon and Dr Hubert P. H. Shum. My research pursues to propose 3D perception and semantic scene understanidng architectures based on Computer Vision and Deep Machine Learning. I’m currently the Student Member of IEEE/CVF.

Prior to Durham, I received my bachelor’s degree in Telecommunications Engineering at Nanjing University of Science and Technology (NJUST) in 2020. In NJUST, I used to work on semantic scene understanding for UAVs and UGVs with Prof Hong Gu.

As an enthusiast of open source projects, I maintain and contribute to a number of open source repositories Follow @l1997i.

I am incredibly thankful to my supervisors and collaborators, and enjoy exploring new domains through collaborations. If you have questions or would like to work together, please feel free to reach out through email or grab some time with me for an appointment either online or in person.
