A fourth-year Ph.D. candidate at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor

Hello! I’m Yunseok JANG, a fourth-year Ph.D. candidate in Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Michigan. My advisor is Prof. Honglak Lee. Previously, I was a master’s student in Computer Science and Engineering at Seoul National University, where I worked with Prof. Gunhee Kim. My current academic interests lie in high-level video understanding and reasoning. In particular, I focus on exploring its spatio-temporal representation and semantic meaning in a hierarchical and compositional form.
