RESEARCH INTERESTS: Machine Learning; Deep Learning: Computer Vision; Optimization


  • (Feb 2018): We are unable to take any short-term interns this summer, and are only looking for long-term interns (6 months to 1 year). I am sincerely sorry for being unable to respond to individual emails seeking internships. If any short-term intern positions open up (based on project needs), they will be posted here in March/April.

  • (Sticky!): We are always looking for motivated PhD students with interest in machine learning/deep learning/computer vision. If you meet the eligibility requirements mentioned at this link, kindly send me an email with subject line "2018 PhD admission" to discuss more.
