We are so glad to welcome our new MCL member, Jiazhi Li! Jiazhi is a summer intern in MCL. Here is a short interview with Jiazhi:

1. Could you briefly introduce yourself and your research interests?

My name is Jiazhi Li, a graduate student in Department of Electrical and Engineering of USC. I grew up in Beijing, the capital of China. I received my bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Beijing Institute of Technology. During that time, I have worked in Research Group of Medical Information Processing. What’s more, in summer 2017, I have worked in Advanced Integrated Cyber-Physical Systems (AICPS) in University of California, Irvine. After these experiences, I found my interests in computer vision and autonomous driving.

2. What is your impression about MCL and USC?

I have been USC for two semesters, and I’m really impressed by the diversity of USC. The MCL is really a big warm family. The weekly report and weekly meeting push me make progress every week. Also, the pizza party before the seminar encloses the MCL member. What’s more, the seminar is very impressive. One hour per week gives a quick look about research topic of other member, which really extend my interests.

3. What is your future expectation and plan in MCL?

The experiences to do research and learn from other members in MCL is really a treasure for me. I will keep going. Stay hungry for more methods and theories of computer vision and machine learning. What’s more, I will take full advantage of the opportunity to study under the supervision of Prof. Jay Kuo. I believe such experiences will give me a lot in further future.
