In spring 2016, MCL has a new PhD student, Yuanhang Su. We welcomed him and had an interview with him.


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

Before I join in the MCL lab, I had worked in the industry for five years. But my work mainly focused on video codecs, image/video processing, and system/algorithmic design for digital cameras. Over the years, I have realized that big data analytics and machine learning is in vogue in the industry right now. I believe machine learning combined with video and image data is the future.


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

I choose MCL, which is guided by Professor Kuo. He is very much invested into this field. I wish I can also learn the state of the art in machine learning from my MCL colleagues.


3. What’s your future expectation for MCL?

Wish MCL can continue leading its way and hopefully I can make my own contribution to this field.
