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

My name is Jiahao Gu. I received my bachelor’s degree in Communication Engineering from Nanjing University of Posts and Telecommunications in 2020. I will be a summer intern at MCL. In my spare time, I enjoy reading and traveling. Some of my research interests include machine learning, point cloud and computer vision.

2. What is your impression about MCL and USC?

MCL is a great place to research. People here are friendly, intelligent and hard working. Professor Kuo is responsible to every student including master students like me. Every week, there will be a seminar and people will have lunch together, which is a great chance for us to share ideas and communicate with each other.

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

For this summer, I will work with Pranav on point cloud odometry. I hope I can improve our method and get better performance. I am looking forward to learning a lot under the guidance of Professor Kuo and Pranav. After the summer internship, I hope I can keep working closely with Professor Kuo.
