CV (updated Sep 2015)


PhD candidate in computer science, member of Image and Video Computing Group, advised by Prof. Stan Sclaroff.
My research interests span various structured prediction problems in computer vision, such as object detection and pose estimation. I enjoy exploring solutions to such problems using statistical learning techniques. I'm also very interested in the optimization aspect (stochastic, non-convex, etc.) in computer vision and machine learning problems.

I obtained my Master of Science degree in computer science from Boston University in January 2014, and my Bachelor of Engineering degree (with honors) in computer science and engineering from Zhejiang University in June 2010.

I spent two enjoyable research internships during Fall 2013 and Summer 2015 working with Dr. Leon Sigal at Disney Research Pittsburgh, on projects related to object recognition. During the 2013 internship I was also fortunate to work with Prof. Yisong Yue and Dr. Sarah Taylor on improving Dynamic Visemes using structured learning.

In spring 2014 I was a visiting PhD student at Brown University, collaborating with Prof. Pedro Felzenszwalb's group.
