Huazhong Ning

I am a Software Engineer in Google, working on video content analysis. I received Ph.D. degree from Dept. of Electrical & Computer Engineering, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign under the supervision of Prof. Thomas S. Huang. I was also a member of the Image Formation and Processing Group(IFP) at the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technologies at UIUC. I have been a Applied Researcher in Microsoft Ad Labs and a Senior Research Scientist in AKiiRA Media Systems Inc.
