I am now a Ph.D. student in the Media Lab, Dept. Electrical Engineering at The City College of New York, CUNY, advised by Professor Ying-Li Tian. My current research focuses on Hand Gesture and Human Activity Recognition. In 2014, I interned at SRI International, Sarnoff Research Lab as a research intern and worked on multi-modality driver state and behavior analysis. In 2015, I interned at Google Photos, at Mountain View, as a Software Engineering Intern.
