We are so glad to welcome our new MCL member, Shiyu Mou! Shiyu is a summer intern in MCL. Here is a short interview with Shiyu:

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

My name is Shiyu Mou, I am a second-year graduate student at USC pursuing a Master’s degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering. I developed a passion for computer vision since undergrad and I started to work on learning-based computer vision projects since grad school, especially 3D computer vision. I’ve been researching on real-world projects for a while now. My previous research experiences include learning-based 3D shape inpainting and 3D human pose estimation from videos.

2. What is your impression about MCL and USC?

MCL is a creative community. Students in the Lab led by Prof. Kuo have the courage to work on something new. They always think things mathematically and logically. During the summer, I am involved in a company project with my mentors and we are trying to overcome some serious real-world challenges. Prof. Kuo is also super supportive and he always brings up creative inspirations for our problems. It’s been a great pleasure to work in MCL.

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

I am working on a summer project on object classification. Hope I can finish this project with some milestones. I enjoyed my summer internship here and would definitely like to come back MCL in the future.
