Interview with MCL Summer Intern Student De Lan

In summer 2016, MCL welcomes a new intern student, De Lan. We gave him a warm welcome and had a short interview with him.

1. Could you briefly introduce yourself? (Previous research experience, project experience, research interest and expertise)

Hi, I’m De Lan from Sichuan provence in China, now studying at Department of Electronic Engineering of BUAA (Beihang University), Beijing, China. I’ll be a senior student soon next semester. I took part in a research project in my university, focusing on human eye saliency prediction in video. I am interested in Computer Vision and Machine Learning. I find them really  intriguing and promising. And that’s why I came here this summer.


2. What’s your first impression of USC and MCL?

There were some intimidating rumors about USC before I came here. However, through what I’ve experienced, I find this place really nice. A big campus with fantastic museums and exhibition hall, many large comfortable libraries and beautiful campus landscaping. And everyone here is friendly. Especially in MCL, members are always prepared to help each other, although we just met the first time for most of us.


3. What’s your future expectation for MCL?

MCL is like a united big family guided by Prof.Kuo ,everyone is great and working hard. I hope to make more friends and learn more about computer vision here in the rest time of this summer.  And I believe MCL members are going to make good news in academic world!
