Me in a Nutshell

I am currently a first-year PhD student in the VICO group with Prof. Hakan Bilen in the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh.


Previously, I spend some wonderful years in Singapore working as a Research Engineer at A*STAR AI Initiative.


In my research, I am interested in solving problems related to social relationship understanding, emotion recognition and more recently incorporating language understanding for image descriptions.


I majored in electronics and communication as a bachelor student, eventually finding passion for machine learning and it’s applications.

Feel free to drop me an email if you have interesting ideas to discuss.
