I am a Computer Science Ph.D. student at the University of Massachusetts (UMass) Amherst, where I am working with Professor Ramesh K. Sitaraman and Professor Mohammad Hajiesmaili. Previously, I received a M.S. degree in Computer Science from National Taiwan University (NTU) where I worked with Professor Winston Hsu.

I am working at the intersection of video streaming and machine learning. Currently, my research focuses on immersive video conferencing systems where remote participants and those in physical attendance can interact face-to-face, fostering natural social interactions. Such a system requires a novel semantic-aware content distribution framework that can capture, compress, deliver, and render 3D visual media with low latency. The challenge is to minimize bandwidth consumption and the latency of machine learning inference while preserving a satisfactory level of visual quality.

Before starting my Ph.D., I worked on applying few-shot learning to computer vision tasks, such as improving the generalizability and adaptability of an object detector.
