We are so glad to welcome a new MCL member, Anubhuti Mittal. Here is an interview with Anubhuti.
1. Could you briefly introduce yourself? (Previous research experience, project experience, research interest and expertise)
I am presently pursuing Master’s in Electrical Engineering at USC. I have done my Bachelor’s in Electrical Engineering at Indian Institute of Technology, Jodhpur, India. I have research interests in Computer Vision and Image Processing. Previously, I have worked on a project on ‘Statistical Analysis of Moving Tongue Contours using Ultrasound Video Sequences’ as a research intern in ETS, Montreal. In this project I quantitatively estimated the variability in tongue shapes of various speech sounds. I also worked on similar projects in my undergraduate.
2. What’s your first impression of USC and MCL?
I was introduced to MCL during the Friday seminar with the inspirational words of Prof. Kuo. It was quite motivating to know the culture of the lab and the fact that it is not just about learning but also sharing that learning with everyone. I was glad to meet the members of the lab, who were so friendly!
3. What’s your future expectation for MCL?
Since one month working in the lab, I feel I have already learnt so many new things in Computer Vision and am still learning many more. I believe, working in MCL would not only teach me Computer Vision but also improve my communication skills which are as much important in industry as research experience.
