Hello World.

I am Hao Tan (谭昊), a fifth-year Ph.D. student at UNC CS department since 2016, advised by Mohit Bansal. My research topic is connecting language meanings to visual concepts (i.e., visual grounding/language grounding). I am supported by Bloomberg Data Science Ph.D. Fellowship from 2019. I will join Adobe Research in summer 2021.

Before joining UNC, I received BS in CS from Shanghai Jiao Tong University. I was a member of ACM honored class.
