My passion for research started in 2001 when I discovered
Computer Vision as an undergrad
for Prof. Sebastien
Roy (University of Montreal). I later pursued with
Prof. Justus Piater and obtained a Ph.D. from the
University of Liège (Belgium). In 2007, I was awarded
a B.A.E.F. fellowship that
supported my work with
Prof. George Bebis at UNR. In 2008, I joined UCLA as a
post-doctoral fellow under the mentoring
Prof. Xiao Hu
Dr David Liebeskind that I completed in 2010. The same
year, I was awarded the NSF China young scholar award.
I joined the faculty at UCLA on July 2015.
