I am a PhD student in High Performance Computing Bio Lab in School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Washington State University. My advisor is Shira Broschat . My general research focuses on subfields of machine learning.
In this research, a novel shape descriptor named hierarchical representation for 2D object recognition and shape retrieval is proposed to describe the object shape efficiently and perfectly.
1)Carried out the multi-level contour segment set combined algorithm to combine inconspicuous contour segments
2)Explored the relationship between global and local features and described objects through hierarchical extractions of both features 3)Developed a modified method to compute the digital contour's curvature
4)Evaluated and analyzed the performance and the robustness of this hierarchical descriptor with the MPEG-7 shape database
Research on Object Recognition Based on Flexible Matching
1)Proposed a novel method of object recognition based on flexible matching 2)Evaluated the algorithm involved and proved its stronger discrimination with better robustness and accuracy

I come from Suzhou, Jiangsu. I have great passion for English writing. I tend to write down what life inspires me. Throughout my undergrad, I was an active contributor to Suzhou Daily and the university magazine named Fun with Writing.
My passion towards writing also brought me academic success. In Octorber of 2013, I was awarded the Top Grade Award of FLTRP Cup National English Writing Contest as I won the second place out of 152 undergraduates in Jiangsu Province.
I spent one year teaching SAT and TOEFL in New Oriental Education & Technology Group Inc. after graduating from Soochow University. This experience is an interesting twist in my career and gave me great opportunities to learn from others.
