Xiaohan Zou 邹笑寒

Xiaohan is a Computer Science master’s student at Boston University and working with Prof. Bryan Plummer. Her current research interests lie primarily in exploring the capability of machines to be continual, generalizable and efficient, like continual learning, meta-learning, few-shot learning and parameter sharing. She is also interested in vision-language learning and video understanding.

Previously, she received her bachelor’s degree in Software Engineering at Tongji University, where she worked on image aesthetic captioning with Prof. Qinpei Zhao. She was also fortunate to work with Prof. Tong Lin (PKU) on continual learning and machine translation.
