Nadine Chang

PhD Student at Carnegie Mellon University· nadinec@cmu.edu

I am advised by Martial Hebert and Michael Tarr in the Robotics Institute. My interests lie in the intersection of computer vision and neuroscience. In particular, I'm interested in utilizing neuroscience as a means to guide future progess in computer vision. Some topics I'm interested in are: task generalization, low-shot learning, and adversarial defense.


Prior to my PhD, I completed my Masters at CMU, where I was advised by Abhinav Gupta.

Activities

RoboOrg - Robotics Institute Graduate Organization

Co-President

I'm the co-president of RoboOrg. Our organization is dedicated to improving graduate students' experiences during their graduate study. We provide many events to help take the stress off from our studies. Some events we do are hosting post seminar receptions, ski trips, paddling trips, advisor information sessions to name a few. This year, I'm committed to bringing community service to RI. Overall, I'm extremely proud of the work we do and consider it an amazing and fun part of my graduate experience.
