We are so glad to welcome a new visiting Professor, Xin Zhou, in fall 2016. Here is an interview with Professor Zhou about her pervious academic experience and her future expectations at MCL.

1. Could you briefly introduce yourself? (Previous research experience, project experience, research interest and expertise)
My name is Xin ZHOU. I come from China and work in Northwestern Polytechnical University (NPU) as a teacher. I received all of my Bachelor degree, Master degree and PH.D degree in NPU and studied as a visiting student in Nagoya University, Japan from 2009 to 2010. My research is mainly about the multimedia processing, especially video compression.

2. What’s your first impression of USC and MCL?
USC is a wonderful university. The UPC is so beautiful and the people are very warm-hearted. Prof. Kuo is a respectable and kind supervisor. Everyone in MCL is very friendly and knowledgeable. I would like to work with them and learn more from them.

3. What’s your future expectation for MCL?
I would like to do research about Video Quality Assessment and try my best to keep pace with other members in this project.
