Qiang Zhang

I am an undergraduate student at Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, expected to graduate in Jun. 2021. I am also a member of Zhiyuan Honors Program.

Currently, I am a research intern at MIT CSAIL, working with Prof. Antonio Torralba. Previously, I was a research intern at UC Berkeley, BAIR, working with Prof. Alyosha Efros, Prof. Xiaolong Wang and Lerrel Pinto during the spring of 2020. Before that, I was a research intern at Uber ATG Toronto, advised by Prof. Raquel Urtasun during the autumn of 2019. Before that, I was a research intern at Stanford University, SAIL, working with Prof. Jeannette Bohg during the summer of 2019. Initially, I was a research assistant at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, working with Prof. Bingbing Ni and Prof. Xiaokang Yang.

I am looking for a Ph.D. position in oversea universities.
