Wufei Ma

I am a PhD student at Johns Hopkins University, advised by Bloomberg Distinguished Professor Dr. Alan Yuille.

I obtained my B.S. with summa cum laude honor from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 2020 and I had a double major in Computer Science and Mathematics. During my undergraduate years, I had worked with Prof. Bülent Yener on discriminative and generative models for microstructure images and with Prof. Lirong Xia on preference learning from natural language.

I've spent time at Meta Reality Labs, Microsoft Research Asia, AWS CV Science, and Megvii Research as a research intern.

Hiring: We are recruiting research interns at CCVL. If you are interested in the opportunities, please email me for details.
