I received the PhD degree from Columbia University in 2012. After graduation, I joined IBM T. J. Watson Research Center as the Josef Raviv Memorial Postdoctoral Fellow. In Nov. 2013, I become a Research Staff Member of IBM T. J. Watson Research Center.
My research interests lie in machine learning, data mining, information retrieval, computer vision, and pattern recognition. My PhD thesis is dedicated to large-scale machine learning algorithms for classification and search. I am continuously developing scalable machine learning algorithms for solving challenging vision and multimedia problems.
In 2014, I received CVPR Young Researcher Support Award, and Best Paper Travel Award (one of three award papers) of IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging (ISBI).
I hold an adjunct faculty position at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) and Stevens Institute of Technology.
