In 2015 Fall semester, MCLab has a new PhD student, He Ming Zhang. She received the B.S. degree in Communication Engineering and M.S degree in , both from Delft University of Technology, Delft, Netherlands. Now we have an interview with her, talking about her background and her thoughts on USC and MCLab.

1. Could you briefly introduce yourself? 

I received my Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering at Delft University of Technology (TU Delft). After that, I continued my study at Delft for a master degree in multimedia signal processing. My research experiences include designing protocols for secure signal processing and analyzing algorithms for distributed signal processing.

2. What is your first impression of USC and MCL?

Unlike TU Delft, USC has more diversity in schools and also the students. The first time I walked through the campus, I was impressed by the high density of buildings.

MCL has a really large number of students but Prof. Kuo still manages to work quite close with students. It is amazing that I can meet him at least twice per week. The whole group looks like a big family. People communicate with each other very well.

3.What’s your future expectation for MCL?

I hope I will soon know everyone well and become good friends with them. I desire for a friendly study and research environment where people are inspired by each other. I also hope that I can enjoy the research here and contribute to the field of computer vision.
