About Me

I am a master student at the University of Michigan in Robotics Institute. My main research interest is Computer Vision and Robotics Perception. I received my B.S.E. in Computer Science at the University of Michigan in 2019. I was previously a Mechanical Engineering student at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, under the UM-SJTU Joint Institute.

Selected Projects

Associative3D: Volumetric Reconstruction from Sparse Views
With Shengyi Qian, Advised by Prof. David Fouhey
Graduate Research, Fouhey AI Lab. Summer 2019 - Fall 2019

We proposed a new approach to solve the problem of full 3D volumetric reconstruction from two views of a scene with an unknown camera by estimating reconstructions, distributions over the camera/object and camera/camera transformations, as well as an inter-view object affinity matrix. This information is then jointly reasoned over to produce the most likely explanation of the scene.
