Songwei Ge

I am a fourth-year PhD student at Department of Computer Science, University of Maryland, advised by Jia-Bin Huang and David Jacobs. I'm currently visiting Angjoo Kanazawa at Berkeley AI Research. I received my Master's degree from Carnegie Mellon University and Bachelor's degrees from Renmin University of China. Since then I've had pleasure to work with Jun-Yan Zhu at The Robotics Institute, Carnegie Mellon University, Ming-Yu Liu at NVIDIA Research, and Devi Parikh at Facebook AI Research.
