I graduated from the Gesture and Narrative Language Group of the MIT Media Lab in June, 2000. My advisor was Professor Justine Cassell. Before I came to MIT, I was in the Department of Automation of Tsinghua University, Beijing, China.

I was born in Anqing, a city lying at the bank of Yangzi river in China. Not until recently did I know that my hometown is the origin of our nation's modern industry. The first steam boat, the first telephone, and the first machine gun in China were manufactured at the Anqing Institute of Firearms in Tsing Dynasty (early 1900s). At the age of 17, I went to Beijing to seek my college education. I got my Bachelor's degree in Automatic Control and Master's degree in Pattern Recognition & Intelligent Control from Tsinghua University.

In 1998, my dream come true. I was admitted by the MIT Media Lab. A whole new world was opened in front of my eyes. The research here is so exciting, and the courses I've taken are very interesting. Influenced by my advisor, I began to document my life with my camera. Here are some of my photos.
