Zhihang Ren

Hi! I'm a PhD student in UC Berkeley Vision Science, supervised by Prof. Stella Yu. Previously, I was a Master student in Electrical and Computer Engineering at UC San Diego, where I worked in Statistical Visual Computing Lab advised by Prof. Nuno Vasconcelos and co-advised by Prof. Bhaskar D. Rao. Before that I was a Bachelor student at UESTC, where I worked with Prof. Shuaicheng Liu. My research interests include: image and video processing, computer vision, and applications on medical imaging. I am also highly interested in human vision system.

Interests

Coming from Chengdu where sunny days are precious, I appreciate every moment in the California sunshine. I love traveling, photography, and anything which could drag me outdoors. In particular, I like star shooting and wildlife shooting. You could find some of those photos in my traveling blog as well as my instagram.

When forced indoors, I follow a number of sci-fi and fantasy genre movies and television shows. I also love cooking. Sharing spicy and hot Sichuan food with friends is my favorite.
