Licheng Yu

I am now a 4-th year Ph.D. student at Department of Computer science, UNC-Chapel Hill. I received my MS degree from Georgia Institute of Technology and BS&MS degrees from Shanghai Jiao Tong University.

My advisor is Tamara L. Berg. I'm also co-advised by Mohit Bansal. My current research lies in the intersection between Computer Vision and Natural Language Processing.
