I'm moving to my new website.

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) at the Ohio State University (OSU). My research interests are in machine learning and its applications to computer vision, autonomous driving, natural language processing, artificial intelligence, and health care.

Prior to joining OSU, I was a Postdoctoral Associate in Computer Science at Cornell University working with Kilian Weinberger and Mark Campbell. Before that, I did my PhD in Computer Science at University of Southern California (USC). My adviser was Fei Sha and I had a great time working with many excellent people in the TEDS lab. Earlier, I obtained a MS degree in Communication Engineering at National Taiwan University, and a BS degree in Communication Engineering at National Chiao Tung University. For more resources and information, please visit my GitHub and my former homepage.

I'm moving to my new website.
