I am looking for highly motivated PhD students. Please feel free to contact me if you find my research interests well matched with yours.

I am currently not looking for master students, or visiting scholars, regardless of their funding status.

If you are an undergraduate student at UW Madison with very strong programming experiences with deep learning frameworks, please contact me with your portfolio.
