name Research Assistant Institute of Information Science
Academia Sinica
Taipei, Taiwan

With partial scholarships sponsored by my government, I am applying for Ph.D. program in CS for Fall 2013.

I am a research assistant under the supervision of Dr. Tyng-Luh Liu at Academia Sinica, Taiwan. My research interests include computational photography and computer vision. In particular, I attend to investigate algorithms to render preferable image by machine learning and optimization.

I received my M.S. in Computer Science & Information Engineering as valedictorian at National Taiwan University in 2010, where I was advised by Prof. Yung-Yu Chuang and focused on stereoscopic media processing. I also worked closely with Prof. Hsuan-Tien Lin on machine learning and later served as Prof. Yaser S. Abu-Mostafa's problem design TA for a relevant course Learning From Data at Caltech.

I have been learning in computer graphics and computer vision for four years since I was an exchange student at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2008. This program was sponsored by National Chiao Tung University, where I got my B.S. in Computer Science.

Here is my CV.
