About Me

I am a second-year PhD student in EECS at UC Merced under the advisement of Prof. Ming-Hsuan Yang. Before coming to UC Merced in 2016, I recieved my M.S. degree in the Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical Engineering from Univeristy of Southern California in 2016, and my B.S. degree in the Department of Electrical Engineering from National Taiwan University.

My research interests include Computer Vision and Machine Learning, particularly in action recognition and video understanding. Here is my CV.

  • library_books 08/2016: Start my PhD at UC Merced


Video Highlights Using Retention Stats
This project is done during the intership at Google. We explore a Youtube statistics - Retention Stats as an auxiliary training signal for video highlights extraction. Retention stats is a Youtube metric that takes multiple behaviors into consideration including when do audiences start, when do they quit, which parts are viewed multiple times and which parts are skipped frequently. We focus on sports highlights since they often share more consistent consensus among audience than other categories.

Graph-Based Logic Bit Slicing for Datapath-Aware Placement
This work proposes a balanced edge-cover algorithm to completely slice any datapath, and an SA-based refinement process to exploit the bit-slice paths as an alignment guidance to placers.
