I am a third-year Ph.D. student advised by professor Nuno Vasconcelos, working on machine learning, deep learning and their applications on computer vision, more specifically on explainable AI, visualization, domain adaptation, machine teaching, stylization, etc.


My research is on trying to explore the powerfulness of self-awareness. A system is self-aware if it can quantify the confidence with which it works. My recent work mainly focuses on employing the self-awareness to solve problems on explainable AI, like counterfactual explanations.

I am always actively seeking research intern positions. Feel free to reach out to me if you are interested.


I will intern at Adobe in summer 2020.
