I am a graduate student at the Department of Computer Science, University of Maryland, College Park. My current research focus is video analysis and semantics, specifically, multimodal grounding. I have some backgrounds in Machine Learning, Computer Vision, Natural Language Processing, Data Mining and Social Network Analysis. I am interested in Tensor Methods, Dimensionality Reduction and Deep Learning. I also have some experiences in Recommender Systems, Learning to Rank and FinTech.
