Vision and Learning Laboratory

The Vision and Learning Lab is part of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Virginia Tech.

We develop algorithms to learn, understand, and re-synthesize the visual world around us. We are specifically focused on these topics:

  • Self-supervised representation learning

  • Improving learning efficiency

  • Learning-based visual reconstruction

  • Understanding video contents

  • Visual sensing for ecology and conservation

  • Interactive neurorehabilitation

Openings: I am actively looking for one or two highly motivated PhD students starting Fall 2019. Please see note to prospective students for more information.
