I am a research scientist on the Facebook Applied Machine Learning team, joining in July 2016. I am currently working on cutting-edge machine learning technologies to make Facebook products smarter.
 
I received my PhD in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign under the supervision of Prof. Thomas S. Huang. I was also a member of the Image Formation and Processing Group (IFP) at the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technologies at UIUC. I was a software engineer at Google for about 6 years and an applied researcher at Microsoft Ad Labs for 1 year.
