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

I’m Jiamian Wang, a graduate student of USC Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. I got my bachelor’s degree at Tianjin University, China. My research interests are computer vision and image processing. I participated in the projects of doing image semantic segmentation, doing outlier-detection using CNNs and creating the image generating models. I’m interested in exploring the mathematical logits behind different algorithms.

  1. What is your impression about MCL and USC?

USC provides many high-quality courses for us, from which I got a solid basis and rich experience.  Also, the community provides us with many chances and platforms, through which we share information and communicate with each other effectively. Because of this I know MCL, in which a new theory about computer vision has been proposed and explored. I’m honored to join the MCL and work with the excellent students and professors here.

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

Computer vision and image processing is my long-time interest and MCL is the excellent lab specialized for this. For this reason, I want to take this chance and devote as much time and effort onto my work as I can. Hopefully, summer intern is a good start for me and in the future, I want to be one of the formal members of MCL as a PhD student.
