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

I am Manasa Manohara, a Master’s student at USC pursuing EE with a focus on Computer Vision. I finished my Bachelor’s from M.S.Ramaiah Institute of Technology in Bangalore, India. I worked as a Development Consultant at SAP India for about a year before I joined USC. I am excited about Computer Vision and Machine Learning, and how a combination of these technologies can be applied to solve everyday problems. I am particularly interested in Image and video segmentation and reconstruction. In my free time, I love to dance and read books.


2. What is your impression about MCL and USC?

USC provides a lot of opportunities for the students to grow not just in terms of academics but also encourages to pursue their personal interests.  It has a good mix of people who are passionate about what they do. I hope I can make the most of what USC has to offer.

MCL is doing a lot of good work in the field of Computer Vision and I would love to learn and contribute to their research along with interacting with my peers to explore their fields of interest.


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

I hope I can enhance my skills in the fields of Image Processing and Deep learning. I wish to accelerate and solve everyday persistent problems with an exciting mixture of the above technologies.
