Xuejian Rong

For now I am a Ph.D. candidate in Media Lab of The City College, City University of New York, and working with Prof. Yingli Tian in the intersection of Deep Learning, Computer Vision, and Image Processing. Before joining Media Lab, I obtained the B.E. degree from Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics in 2013.

Currently my research interests mainly focus on inference and learning for scene text detection and recognition in the wild, in the presence of image degradations like blur, distortion, noise, etc.
