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

My name is Chengyao Wang and I’m currently pursuing a M.S. degree in Electrical Engineering here at USC. Prior to that, I received my B.S. in Automation from Zhejiang University in 2018. With my interest lying in machine learning and computer vision, I’m now working on a summer intern project regarding classification and segmentation of medical images under the guidance of Prof. Kuo. I believe it will be a good starting point of exploring this intriguing area.


2. What is your impression about MCL and USC?

USC is well known for its academic achievements and strong alumni network, and it sure is. Everyone I met here is full of passion about what they’re doing and seems to be always ready to help others. MCL is such a dynamic and cohesive group, where everyone here could get a chance & full support to dig into their own areas of interest. Prof. Kuo is a respected expert with profound domain knowledge as well as a supportive instructor who knows well how to guide students and group people.


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

At this point, I would hope my current project goes on well and treat it with full devotion. I also want to connect with more people at MCL as a newcomer and blend into this warm and big family. Frankly speaking, I don’t have a clear vision for the future yet, but I believe I’ll stick to what I feel is interesting and make some differences.
