Fanyi Xiao

PhD student
computer vision and AI

Hi there! I am a computer science PhD student at the University of California Davis, advised by Prof. Yong Jae Lee. Previously, I completed my master's degree in Robotics at Carnegie Mellon University, advised by Prof. Martial Hebert and Prof. Yaser Sheikh.
I have spent a great summer working with Dr. Leonid Sigal at Disney Research in 2016. This summer I am continuing my adventure at NVIDIA Research.
