Hui LIANG (梁慧) Amazon, Seattle, WA, USA
I have been a research scientist at Amazon Go since January 2018. Before that I was a research scientist in Institute of High Performance Computing, A*STAR, Singapore. I obtain my Ph.D degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering under the supervision of Prof. Junsong Yuan and Prof. Daniel Thalmann at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. Previously I got my Bachelor and Master degrees in Electronics and Information Engineering from Huazhong University of Science and Technology in 2008 and 2011. My CV can be found here [CV].
