I am a member of Intelligent Information Systems (IIS) research lab at Penn State. I am working with Prof. James Wang (adviser) and Prof. Jesse Barlow (co-adviser), also collaborating with Prof. Zihan Zhou. My research interests lie in the area of computer vision and big visual data computing. More specifically, I am interested in image aesthetics using deep learning, pattern recognition and multimedia processing, and information retrieval. Also I am working in the field of big data computing specially on resource allocation in distributed systems and parallel computing.
