I am a first-year M.Phil. student in Computer Science at City University of Hong Kong, where I am fortunate to be advised by Dr. Shiqi Wang. In summer 2017, I attended a summer school at University of California, Irvine in CA, USA. Prior to joining CityU, I received my bachelor's degree at Northeast Electric Power University in Jilin, China, supervised by Prof. Yimin Hou. I always aim to use what I have learned to bring a positive impact on people's lives, and find the courage to make life a blessing.

My research focuses on Computer Vision and Graph Deep Learning, and my current concentration is Image Quality Assessment and Perceptual Optimization.

        We presented a novel approach that could potentially be used to improve the current stroke rehabilitation strategies by implementing a deep learning approach for an Electroencephalogram (EEG) based on MI Brain-Computer Interface System.
        • Constructed 6 convolutional layers, 2 max-pooling layers, and 3 FC layers CNNs for four-class motor imagery classification through TensorFlow, with 50% dropout (spatial dropout after every Conv layer and regular dropout for FC layers) – 11.44% accuracy improvement, batch normalization (BN) – 10.15% improvement, and Short-cut Connection – 1.76% improvement to prevent overfitting, and achieved SOTA results: 94.50% accuracy on scout R5, 94.54% at subject level, and 96% for left fist prediction.
        • Took charge of DNNs design, including methods comparisons, such as MLPs, CNNs, RNNs, LSTMs, and Autoencoders, classification results calculations, and programming. 10 and 14 subjects’ data were utilized (19,320 and 27,048 samples in the experiments)
        • Benchmark Dataset: EEG Motor Movement/Imagery Dataset.

        Based on the Graph Convolutional Neural Network (Graph CNN / GCN), the GCNs-Net was introduced, which filtered the EEG Motor Imagery (MI) signals considering the functional topological relationship of EEG electrodes.
        • At the subject and group level (subject-specific adaptation), 98.72% and 89.387% accuracy were achieved, respectively.
        • Pearson’s Matrix was applied to measure the correlations among channels, and represented the graph structure, i.e., graph weights and degrees.
        • Benchmark Datasets: EEG Motor Movement/Imagery Dataset, in which 20 ( a million samples), 50, 100 participants’ data were used, and the High-Gamma Dataset, in which 14 participates' data were used.

        We introduced a novel approach which combined Attention-based BiLSTM with the Graph Convolutional Neural Network (Graph CNN / GCN). The method has achieved SOTA results.
        • Open Source EEG-DL, a Deep Learning (DL) library written by TensorFlow for EEG Tasks (Signals) Classification.
        • Attention-based BiLSTM was firstly used to extract features from raw EEG signals. The followed GCN model classified the features regarding to four EEG Motor Imagery (MI) tasks, imagining left fist, right fist, both fists, and both feet.
        • 98.81% and 94.64% accuracies have been achieved for the individual subject and a group of 20 subjects.
        • Benchmark Dataset: EEG Motor Movement/Imagery Dataset.
