What are your research interests in a bit more detail? Is your current academic/research path what you always had in mind for yourself, or has it evolved somewhat? If so, how/why?

My interest lies in Weakly/Un-supervised machine learning. I am currently focusing on Zero-Shot Learning and Video Summarization.

What’s one problem you’d like to solve with your research/work?

How to encode existing textual human knowledge into a machine model.

What aspect of what you do is most interesting/fascinating to you? What aspects of your research (findings, angles, problems you’re solving) might surprise others?

I like reading about ideas from different fields and borrow them to my research.

What are your research/career goals, going forward?
