Xiangxin Zhu

(Xiangxin is pronounced "Shung-Shin", and Zhu is pronounced "Ju")

I graduated from UCI and joined in September 2014.

I am a computer science Ph.D. student at UC Irvine. I work at School of Information and Computer Sciences with the Computational Vision Group where I am advised by Professor Deva Ramanan and Professor Max Welling. I am broadly interested in computer vision, machine learning and their applications.

The best way to reach me is through email:

Previously, I completed my M.E. in Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences with Professor Stan Li, and B.S. in Tsinghua University, Beijing, China. I was at Google Visual Search for the summer of 2012 working with Drago Anguelov.
