About Me
Yongxi Lu


I am a PhD candidate at University of California, San Diego. My interests broadly lie in computer vision, machine learning and robotics. I am particularly passionate about understanding the intrinsic complexity of the underlying information acquisition and utilization problems in these domains. Towards this goal, I propose novel algorithms and analyze their behaviors on real-world datasets as well as theoretical models. I worked on improving detection and automated multi-task network design. In both cases my vintage point was to structure the parameters and computations of the model in an adaptive manner, so as to make the resultant solution is more efficient and effective. My adviser is Professor Tara Javidi

I received my Bachelor's degree in Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. I was fortunate enough to call the gorgeous sea-side campus home, and to proudly be an alumnus of the very cool HKUST robotics team. In my junior year, I spent a semester as an exchange student at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

I have worked as a research intern at IBM TJ Watson Research Center for the summer of 2016. I am joining the autopilot team at Tesla as an intern for the summer of 2017!
