Pengxiang Cheng

I am a senior undergraduate in Department of Automation at Tsinghua University, Beijing. I will receive my Bachelor of Engineering Degree in July 2013, with 2nd Bachelor's Degree in Economics.

My research interests mainly focus on machine learning and computervision, especially their interdisciplinary research with cognitive science. My ultimate research goal is that the machine learning algorithms can help us understand human learning and the way brain works.

In 2012 summer, I was a research intern at Virtual Reality Lab, University of Texas at Austin, supervised by Prof. Dana H. Ballard. In my junior year, I was a research assistant at Broadband Network & Digital Media Lab, Tsinghua University, supervised by Prof. Qionghai Dai.

I am now applying to PhD Program in Computer Science.
