I will be joining UC San Diego as an assistant professor in the ECE department in 2020 Fall. I am currently a postdoctoral fellow at UC Berkeley, working with Alexei Efros and Trevor Darrell. I received a Ph.D. in robotics from the Carnegie Mellon University, at where I worked with Abhinav Gupta. Here is my PhD Thesis.
I have also worked with Kaiming He and Ross Girshick at the Facebook AI Research (FAIR); Ali Farhadi at the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence (AI2). I have received the Facebook Fellowship, NVIDIA Fellowship, and Baidu Fellowship.
I'll be hiring self-motivated Ph.D. students to begin in 2020 Fall from both CSE and ECE departments. See more details here.
There are also openings for undergrad / grad interns in spring in UC Berkeley, and in summer in UCSD.
I am interested in Computer Vision, Machine Learning and Robotics. Specifically on the topics of Self-Supervised Learning, Video Understanding, Common Sense Reasoning, RL and Robotics. Here is my Research Statement.
I am co-organizing the Tutorial on Learning Representations via Graph-structured Networks in CVPR 2019.
I am co-organizing the Workshop on Multi-Modal Learning from Videos in CVPR 2019.
