Hi, I am Mingze. I am a Senior Applied Research Scientist II at Cruise. Before joining Cruise, I also worked or interned at AWS AI Labs, Microsoft Research, and Honda Research Institute.

I received my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from Indiana University, advised by Prof. David Crandall in 2020. I was a visiting student researcher at Georgia Institute of Technology, working with Prof. Dhruv Batra and Prof. Devi Parikh, in 2018. Before that, I received my Master's degree in Computer Science from Indiana University and my Bachelor's degree in Software Engineering from Jilin University.

My research interests lie primarily in the area of computer vision and deep learning, and my current focus is on learning representations from large-scale multi-source data and transferring knowledge across domains. In particular, my ongoing projects consider the following applications:

  • Action and activity recognition

  • First-person (egocentric) vision

  • Person tracking and re-identification

  • Generative AI
