Portrait

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), Google Inc. (2012) and Apple Inc. (2014).

My research interest is in computer vision. My advisor is Professor Todd Zickler. Please also see my research statement.
