Openings: I am looking for two highly motivated PhD students starting Fall 2017. Please see note to prospective students for more information.
I am an Assistant Professor in the 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 for visual synthesis and analysis problems.
I received my PhD degree in Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign under the supervision of Prof. Narendra Ahuja. 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). I am lucky to work with these wonderful people.
