Galen Chuang

Graduate Student
Computational Vision

WHERE I'M FROM

Seattle, WA

BEFORE VS

I studied computer science at Wellesley College (outside of Boston), then worked as a software engineer in NYC for a few years. Most recently, I was in Taipei working on code-switching speech recognition at National Taiwan University.

WHY I’M HERE

I've always been interested in perception, the eye, and the brain, but have never studied them seriously. I also believe studying vision from a biological and perceptual perspective will make me a better computational vision researcher.

MY RESEARCH

Ideally will focus on developing robust representations of vision and using vision pathway-inspired concepts to create better computer vision systems.

MY GOALS

Be able to conduct rigorous and scientifically-sound data analysis; be able to independently make progress on a research problem; gain deeper understanding of human and machine perception

MY HOBBIES

Eating, boxing, cooking, wine, Chinese calligraphy
