For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline.

2 Timothy 1:7

Hello! I just graduated from PhD in May 2019 and am currently a full-time researcher at Google Brain. During my PhD (class 2014), I worked with Prof. Jitendra Malik in the Vision group at University of California Berkeley. I graduated from National Taiwan University summa cum laude (top 1% in class). In addition, I was the Berkeley Graduate Fellowship recipient of EECS department. My research interests are Computer Vision and Machine learning for instance-level understanding and medical imaging
In summer 2015, I interned with Prof. William T Freeman and Ce Liu at Google Research. In summer 2016, I worked as a research intern at Apple to develop video analysis algorithm by unsupervised sequence learning techniques. Since the spring of 2017, I have been working with Dr. Esther Yuh and Dr. Pratik Mukherjee in UCSF on head trauma CT scan analysis. From May 2018 to May 2019, I was an intern/student researcher at Google Brain working on object recognition/segmentation.
