Hello, I am a first year Ph.D. student at Department of Computer Science, UC Santa Cruz. My technical interest is on the range of computer vision, machine learning and data science
Completed two semesters before transferring to UC Santa Cruz
GPA: 8.75/10.00 - Salutatorian
Write grammar rules for SAS programming language and construct its syntax tree using ANTLR4
Worked in a team to build a Golf Digital Tracking System which helps golfers practice indoor. Estimated movement of golf balls from image sequences capture by cameras using Optical Flow and Hough Transform
Build an end-to-end automatic singing skill evaluation system based on machine learning techniques with ~8000 mp3 audio obtained by scraping online karaoke websites. Achieved a squared error of 1.78/10 for singing evaluation and an accuracy of 85% on the sub-problem of classifying male/female singers
Build a fully automated classifier for multi-label image annotation using Convolutional Neural Networks. Applied a regression model that automatically choose the threshold that gives maximum F1 score
Implement Structured-light technique in a holographic display system to obtain surface depth map of user's finger movement. For unique indexing, structured-light pattern based on De Bruijn Sequences is created and used
I like hiking and taking nature photos, especially at national parks. I have visited a considerable number of them since I first came to the US. Photos of these trips can be found on my Flickr. I like national parks well enough that I made a commitment to a) visit one every year and b) live until my 70s so that I can visit all of them.
I am a patient and meticulous person. Maybe not meticulous as you might think after seeing the room I live or reading stuff I wrote, but I tend to be a perfectionist in doing what I like. I am also interested in the world around me so I spend a certain amount of time each day reading the newspaper and seeing what the world around me is like.
