I am a Ph.D. student in Geographic Information Science (GIS) at University of Wisconsin - Madison, advised by Prof. Qunying Huang. I am also in the master program of Electrical and Computer Engineering (machine learning track) at UW-Madison. Previously, I received the M.Sc. from Chinese Academy of Sciences (2017), and the B.Eng. from Wuhan University (2014).

I've been thinking about leveraging the power of machine learning, optimization, and computer vision to advance remote sensing image understanding for social good applications.

My research interests span machine learning, computer vision, and remote sensing. I am recently focusing on self-supervised learning of spatial-spectral features in satellite and aerial imagery for disaster response.
