About Me

I received the B. Eng and M. Eng degrees from Shenzhen University (China), in 2015 and 2018, respectively, both in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. During July to November, 2018, I was a research assistant at Southern University of Science and Technology (China). In December, 2018, I joined the Signal Processing Group at Darmstadt University of Technology (Germany), and commenced working on my PhD. My current research interests lie in robust array signal processing, statistical signal processing, and optimization theory with applications to signal processing.
