We are so happy to welcome a new graduate member of MCL, Hongyu Fu. Here is an interview with Hongyu:

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

My name is Hongyu Fu, before becoming a PhD student in USC, I got my bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Peking University. My past research experience focuses mostly on semiconductor device physics and circuits, while exploring device and circuit based neuromorphic computing and machine learning topics, I have heard more and more about computer vision, AI and machine learning, which are always my keen interest that I haven’t got chances to learn before. Therefore, I really appreciate Prof. Kuo for giving me this opportunity to study in MCL and explore more in this exciting area.


2. What is your impression about MCL and USC?

I really love the beautiful campus, friendly atmosphere and enjoy the convenient facilities of USC. We have a fight-on spirit as Trojans, which makes USC a great network and everyone in this network passionate and motivated. MCL is a large and efficient group with a hard-working spirit and intelligent students with solid skills and deep knowledge under the supervision of Prof. Kuo, who is a very nice and responsible advisor profound in knowledge and research.


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

I will definitely work hard, learn solid skills of math, problems solving and research and hope to contribute to MCL in the future. I wish that in the near future, the MCL group and myself would have a solid standing in the machine learning and computer vision community and contribute to the improvement of this field.
