Prospective Students: I am looking for two highly motivated PhD students starting Fall 2020. Please see the note to prospective students page for more information.

I am an assistant professor in the Bradley Electrical and Computer Engineering department at Virginia Tech. My main research interests are in the area of computer vision, computer graphics, and machine learning. I am particularly interested in exploiting physically grounded constraints to enable efficient visual learning.

I received my PhD degree in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Over the summers, I am lucky to have the opportunities to work with Rich Caruana (Microsoft Research), Leonid Sigal (Disney Research), Sung Ju Hwang (Disney Research), Zhengyou Zhang (Microsoft Research), Zicheng Liu (Microsoft Research), Qin Cai (Microsoft Research), Johannes Kopf (Facebook Research), Sing Bing Kang (Microsoft Research), and Ming-Hsuan Yang (UC Merced).
