Hadi Kiapour

I am a computer science Ph.D. student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I work in the Computer Vision Group where I am advised by Prof. Tamara Berg. I am also fortunate to collaborate with Prof. Alex Berg and Prof. Svetlana Lazebnik.

My research is at the exciting intersection of computer vision and machine learning and is focused on classifying images from the web. I have a passion for using computer vision to recognize clothing, in particular detecting and parsing clothing items and recognizing fashion styles.

I spent the summer of 2014 and 2015 as a research intern at the eBay Computer Vision Research Lab in San Jose, California.
