Miao Liu (刘淼)

I am a Ph.D. student in Robotics at Georgia Tech, advised by Prof. James Rehg. I also work closely with Prof.Yin Li from University of WisconsinMadison. I'm fortunate to work with Prof. Siyu Tang and Prof. Michael Black during my visit at ETH Zurich and Max Planck Institute. I enjoyed a wonderful time interning at Facebook Reality Lab, where I collaborated with Dr. Chao Li, Dr. Lingni Ma, Dr. Kiran Somasundaram, and Prof. Kristen Grauman on 4D egocentric action recognition. Before I joined Georgia Tech, I earned my Master degree from Carnegie Mellon University and Bachelor degree from Beihang University.

My research interests lie at the intersection between Computer Vision, Machine Learning, and Robotics. Especially, I'm interested in understanding human attention and human actions from Egocentric Vision perspective.
