Zihui (Sherry) Xue


Hi, I am Zihui Xue (薛子慧), a third-year Ph.D. student at UT Austin, advised by Prof. Kristen Grauman. I am also a visiting researcher at FAIR, Meta AI. Previously, I'm fortunate to work with Prof. Radu Marculescu on efficient deep learning and Prof. Hang Zhao on multimodal learning. I obtained my bachelor's degree from Fudan University in 2020.

My research interests lie in video understanding and multimodal learning.
