De-An Huang (黃德安)

I am a Research Scientist at NVIDIA. I received my PhD in Computer Science from Stanford, where I was advised by Fei-Fei Li and Juan Carlos Niebles.

I have also worked with Kris Kitani during my masters at Carnegie Mellon University, and Yu-Chiang Frank Wang during my undergrad at National Taiwan University (國立臺灣大學).

Over the summers, I've been lucky to be an intern with Dieter Fox at NVIDIA Seattle Robotics Lab, Vignesh Ramanathan and Dhruv Mahajan at Facebook Applied Machine Learning, Zicheng Liu at Microsoft Research Redmond, and Leonid Sigal at Disney Research Pittsburgh.
