Research Interests

I’m conducting research on various Computer Vision problems with Deep Learning as the tool. More specifically, my primary interests are related to image recognition (e.g. object detection, image classification and semantic segmentation). I’m also interested in more challenging instance segmentation and human pose estimation.
