Yao Qin

CSE PhD student @ UCSD

My name is Yao Qin (秦瑶). I am a fourth-year Ph.D. student in the CSE Department at UC San Diego, advised by Prof. Garrison W. Cottrell . Before joining in UCSD, I got my bachelor degree from Dalian University of Technology, working on saliency detection with Prof. Huchuan Lu. My research interests are machine learning, computer vision and generative models. Recently, I am doing research on adversarial examples.
