Tianmin Shu

I am a postdoc at MIT advised by Josh Tenenbaum and Antonio Torralba. I received my Ph.D. in Statistics from University of California, Los Angeles under the supervision of Song-Chun Zhu. My research interests are social perception and multi-agent systems. I have interned at Facebook AI Research working with Yuandong Tian, and at Salesforce Research working with Caiming Xiong and Richard Socher. I have also closely worked with Hongjing Lu, Ying Nian Wu, Sinisa Todorovic, and Michael S. Ryoo.
