We are so happy to welcome a new graduate member, Catherine Aurelia Christie Alexander, joining MCL this summer. Here is a quick interview with  Catherine:

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

My name is Catherine Aurelia Christie Alexander. I am a graduate student at USC, pursuing my Master’s in Electrical Engineering, specializing in Signal and Image Processing. My research interests include Machine Learning, Computer Vision, Signal Processing and Biomedical Imaging. 

2. What is your impression about MCL and USC?

 USC’s diversity and huge network is very impressive. There are many resources on and off campus that are very helpful and help one grow into an individual ready to face the world. MCL is one such place that has seen the growth of many students. The lab is full of enthusiastic, focused, and goal-driven students guided by Professor Kuo, who is very dedicated and inspiring. There is so much to learn from each person. Seminar sharing sessions give an overview of research in the lab and are very informative and encouraging. 

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

As a continuation of my summer research, I will be working with biomedical images, specifically on nuclei segmentation, and hope to develop skills and knowledge in this field. I would also like to contribute green AI solutions to the field of healthcare as a part of MCL. I look forward to connecting with all the members and having a great learning experience!
