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 in such 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 an enjoyable Fall 2013 as a research intern working with
Dr. Leon Sigal at Disney Research Pittsburgh,
focusing on simultaneous object detection and continuous pose estimation.
During that time I was also fortunate to work with
Prof. Yisong Yue and Dr. Sarah Taylor
using structured learning.
In spring 2014 I was a visiting PhD student at Brown University, collaborating with Prof. Pedro Felzenszwalb's group.
Jun - Aug 2015: I will do a second internship at Disney Research Pittsburgh.
Sep 24, 2014: Passed PhD oral exam. Slides
