PhD Student, Computer Science, Cornell University yw763@cornell.edu

Hi, I am Yan Wang, a second-year Ph.D. student in Computer Science Department of Cornell University, advised by Kilian Q. Weinberger, Bharath Hariharan and Mark Campbell. My research interests are Computer Vision and Machine Learning. I recieved my B.S. in Computer Science from Huazhong University of Sci. & Tech., advised by Kun He. Before joining Cornell, I was honored to have interned in Eric Chang's group at Microsoft Research Asia. (C.V.)


  • March, 2019    One paper on 3D Object Detection was accepted by CVPR2019.
  • February, 2019    One paper on Stereo Depth Estimation was accepted by ICRA2019.
  • January, 2019     I would intern at Facebook AI Research this summer.
