Zhihao Xia

I am a second-year PhD student at Washington University in St. Louis, where I work on computer vision, computational photography and machine learning. I'm part of WashU Vision & Learning Group, advised by Ayan Chakrabarti.

I received a Bachelors in CS from School of the Gifted Young at USTC. I've also spent time at NUS and KAUST.

My research interests include computer vision, image processing and deep learning. I'm particularly interested in the design of accurate and efficient algorithms for visual inference by exploiting the statistical structure of natural images and scenes. I have also worked in computational biology.
