About Me

I am a computer science Ph.D. candidate in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Harvard University, advised by Prof. Hanspeter Pfister. I am interested in computer vision, deep learning, and neuroscience. My current projects include semantic & instance segmentation, active learning, unsupervised learning, and the analysis of comprehensive neuron connectivity in microscopy images of animal brains (connectomics).
