Felix Yu

I am a 3rd year PhD student in Computer Science at Princeton University, working in the Visual AI lab with Olga Russakovsky as my advisor. My research lies in the domain of computer vision, with a focus on video understanding. Prior to my current position, I have participated in research projects in fields ranging broadly from computational genomics to vision. I am also interested in the space of fairness and representation in artificial intelligence.

I received my undergraduate degree from Johns Hopkins University, where I double majored in Biomedical Engineering as well as Computer Science, studying the computational biology track. I have also spent a summer interning at Facebook.
