About me:

Greeting! I'm a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. I'm working with Dr. Alexander G. Hauptmann. I received my Ph.D. degree in computer science from University of Trento, Italy in 2013 under the supervision of Prof. Nicu Sebe. During my Ph.D. study, I had been an intern in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University from Sep. 2011 to Mar. 2012 and from Jun. 2013 to Nov. 2013. I had been a research assistant in the School of Computing at National University of Singapore from Sep. 2012 to Feb. 2013, working with Prof. Shuicheng Yan. My research interest is mainly on machine learning and its application to multimedia analysis and computer vision. You can know more of me from my CV.
