Ph.D. candidate in Robotics, Georgia Institute of Technology
Wall Lab & BORG Lab, Institute for Robotics and Intelligent Machines

Previous Education:
M.Sc., Artificial Intelligence in Computing, Imperial College London
B.Sc., Electrical Engineering in Aeronauntics, Northwestern Polytechnical University

I am a Ph.D. student in Robotics at Georgia Tech, School of Interactive Computing, jointly advised by Prof. James Rehg, and Prof. Frank Dellaert. During my Phd, I am also fortunate to intern at Nvidia Research in the group of Jan Kautz and at Max Planck Institute with Prof. Andreas Geiger. Before I started my Phd at Gatech, I finished my Master thesis under the supervision of Prof. Andrew Davison at Imperial College London.

My research interests lie in general computer vision in 3D. My current focus is to explore fast, accurate approaches for dense 3D motion from visual signals in unconstrained environments, which is the core of my thesis. My strenghts are in the following fields:
  • 3D Scene Flow, Optical Flow, and Motion Tracking
  • Structure from Motion, Simultaneous Localization and Mapping

  • For students in CS 4476, please refer to the course website.
