Brevity is the soul of wit.
If you are interested in joining my group to do fun research, please send me an email. My group has opennings in postdoctoral research associates, graduate and undergraduate research assistants.
In your email, please describe concisely your background and experience in education and research, with an emphasis on your mathematical training, programming skills (especially on large-scale computing in parallel and distributed environments), and research experiences in machine learning and related areas. Please also attach a copy of your CV in PDF format.
For initial inquiries, ideally please include the contact information for at least one reference (letter writer) from academia who can speak about your qualification and capability.
Visitors/internships: due to limited funding for this, I only admit a very few number of visitors/internships -- they are often recommended directly to me by their advisors or my collaborators.
Graduate resarch assistantships: please note that you will need to be also admitted to the USC Computer Science's PhD program. Please check its requirement here.
Directed research: if you want to take one semester or two to do research in my group (to fulfill your educational and research requirement), please let me know. The minimal requirement is that you either have taken a course with me at the level of intermediate machine learning (or above) and earn a grade of A- or above, or you have taken a similarly rigorous course in another institute (graduate-level) with a similar grade.
My office is in the Ronald Tutor Hall (RTH) 403.
For the courses I teach, I have fixed office hours and will annouce them separately.
For meetings for other purposes, please send an email to make an appointment.
I have a few favoriate on-campus spots (most frequently, the courtyard in front of RTH, and the courtyard at Engineering Quad) and I sometimes work out from there.
Please feel free to stop by to say hi, especially if I am just enjoying coffee.
My lab is at SAL 304, 306, 308 and 311.
However, none of those is an ideal way to find me.
