Hello! My name is Panqu Wang. I am now a research scientist at TuSimple and lead the deep learning team. I obtained my Ph.D. degree in March, 2017 from Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of California, San Diego. My advisor is Professor Garrison W. Cottrell from Department of Computer Science and Engineering. My research areas are on machine learning, computer vision, and cognitive modeling. In particular, I am interested in building brain-inspired neurocomputational models that explain how face and objects are processed and recognized in human visual pathway.

I came from Tianjin, China, and my lovely hometown is in Jilin province. Heading south, I spent 4 years in Fudan University, Shanghai, to get my bachelor degree majored in Electrical Engineering. During my senior year, I visited UCSD and joined Professor Nuno Vasconcelos's lab doing projects on building a speed limit sign detector using visual saliency and boosting cascades.
