Hello World! Welcome to my home page!


My name is Ying Xiong, or 熊英 in Chinese. I graduated from Tsinghua University July 2010, and am currently a Ph.D. student at Harvard University. I have spent my time at University of Southern California (2009), NEC Laboratories America (2011) and Google Inc. (2012).


My current research interest is in computer vision, with my advisor Professor Todd Zickler.
