About Me

My name is Yao Qin. I am a third-year Ph.D. student in the CSE Department at UC San Diego. My advisor is Professor Garrison W. Cottrell and I work in Gary's Unbelievable Research Unit. My research interests are machine learning (especially deep learning), computer vision and cognitive science. Recently, I am doing research on semantic segmentation and time series prediction.

This summer, I was a research intern at Microsoft Research Cambridge, UK and joined the InnerEye group. My advisors are Antonio Criminisi and Aditya Nori and work on 3D semantic segmentations for medical images. During the summer in 2016, I was a research intern advised by Haifeng Chen and Dongjin Song at NEC Labs America and worked on time sereis prediction with recurrent neural networks.

Before coming to UC San Diego, I got my bachelor degree in Department of Communication Engineering from Dalian University of Technology, Dalian, China. During my senior year, I did the research on saliency detection in Intelligent Image Analysis and Understanding Lab.
