I am pursuing my Ph.D. in Computer Science and Engineering at The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST). My primary research interests lie in computer vision, medical image analysis, and trustworthy artificial intelligence.

Prior to joining HKUST, I graduated from Northwestern Polytechnical University (NWPU) with honor, and obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Software Engineering from the School of Software and Microelectronics. Throughout my undergraduate studies, I was honored to receive several prestigious awards and recognitions, including the China National Scholarship.
